The Other Typist

Click for availability and more information The Other Typist, by Suzanne Rindell
The Other Typist by debut author Suzanne Rindell is the best book I've read so far this summer. It's a psychological suspense novel set in the roaring 1920s. Most of the descriptions of this book mention an unreliable narrator, which I found intriguing.

Kirkus Reviews gave it a starred review, and I think this says it best, "Take a dollop of Alfred Hitchcock, a dollop of Patricia Highsmith, throw in some Great Gatsby flourishes, and the result is Rindell's debut, a pitch-black comedy about a police stenographer accused of murder in 1920s Manhattan. . . . A deliciously addictive, cinematically influenced page-turner, both comic and provocative." If you enjoyed Gone Girl, make this your next book. Happy reading!
