Book Review - Double Helix by Nancy Werlin
Double Helix by Nancy Werlin is a Edgar Award winner. The Edgar awards are sponsored by Mystery Writers of America. Usually when I start a book, I've at least read the back blurb. I came to Double Helix with only connotations of it's name and the picture on the cover, DNA & genetics.
This is not one of my favorite books but it is a compelling read. I struggled at times to understand why the main character was acting like such a jerk. Even by the end of the book I never found justification for his behaviour.
P.S. Conservative readers will object to the liberal portrayal of parents.
