Grist Mill Road - Christopher Yates

Staff Pick

Grist Mill Road is a coiled, twisted snake of a book. Christopher Yates inverts everything we think we know about thrillers-- the very first scene is the crime that drives the entire story-- without ever sacrificing his blistering, desperate pace. From the first pages all bets are off, and the true thrills come from learning the motives behind the characters actions-- not the usual “who did it”. The realizations are jagged and grim and never simple—but the humanity and believability of the flawed, complex characters is what gives Grist Mill Road its resonance and what elevates it above and beyond traditional thrillers.
