Would you recommend The Last Best Friend to your friends? Why or why not?
Yes and no. This was one of those novels where "nothing happens". The mystery takes about one hour of the total. I almost quit and returned the novel several times, yet I didn't.
What does David Thorpe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He was the reason I bought this book (besides that I like to read dead, forgotten authors). He can literally do anything! Even some of the characters that are dated, ethnic stereotypes get his full treatment. Can he get an Oscar?
Any additional comments?
Perhaps this is a book you should get when you want "something different", unpredictable and outside your usual reading. Or skip it. Either way. It does not belong on the list of 100 best mysteries. Save that for Reginald Hill or Margaret Allingham.
