About the Book

Have you ever fallen in love and then had not just your life but your conception of life altered forever? Come and find out more in A POSTMODERN LOVE, a contemporary adult novel--romance, noire, psychological suspense.

In the end, a man is shot through the heart. Another man is driven to the edge of madness. Caught between them is Lana Fauves, a beautiful, intelligent woman, but one who is haunted by her past and the loss of her true love, a musical genius. In this fast-paced novel--romance, thriller, and noire--Thomas Wilde, a doctor and veteran of the Iraq War, will stop at nothing to win over the woman he has desperately fallen in love with. But amid the machinations of the modern world, will he find true love, or only heartache, deception, and murder?

My Review

An air of mystery surrounds A Postmodern Love.  The author's writing style is one that I find both enjoyable and challenging.  He writes with great detail and offers readers a lot of psychological suspense and twists and turns through to the end making it a book that readers will not be able to put down until they find resolution.  Having said that, he develops characters that readers will likely not find heartwarming nor endearing.  Instead, he develops characters that are broken and elusive with mysterious and doubtful motives and interactions.  In building suspense for the readers, some of the text is a bit confusing as we aren't given all of the details that we need at times throughout the story.  I needed to read the storyline's resolution--but, I couldn't really root for any one character for a happy ending.

Readers should expect bad decisions and surprises.  I found myself wondering how the characters could behave in the ways that they did.  The author took some poor character traits and broken people and pulled them through a convoluted love story that is troubling and dotted with surprises for the reader.

Would I recommend A Postmodern Love by Nick Totem?  If you enjoy a psychological romantic suspense novel with broken characters--this is a somewhat unique story that explores a variety of situations with twists, turns and the unexpected.  The book is quite detailed--yet can be a bit confusing at times as the author builds the suspense and mystery behind his characters, their relationship and motives.  I enjoyed the book and will definitely look for more from this author in the future.
