Description

Laurie R. King creates unforgettable characters and situations in her mystery series featuring Kate Martinelli and Mary Russell. In Folly, she tells the gripping story of a woman on the edge of the world--and the edge of sanity. Tragedy and mental illness have been dark companions of Rae Newborn for more than 50 years. Her life seems to start rebuilding itself, though, when she moves to a deserted island to restore the house her mysterious great-uncle built in the 1920s. But Rae senses powerful forces stirring on the island. Is the skin-crawling feeling she has of someone watching her only in her mind, or has something disturbingly real taken notice of Rae? Like King's best-selling suspense thriller A Darker Place (RB# 95648), Folly brilliantly portrays a woman pushed to her limits and beyond. Frank Muller's powerful narration captures all the terrors that stalk Rae from without and from within.

Professional reviews

"For terror to be believable, for it to surprise and grip the reader as it does the character one is reading about, it is necessary first to establish calm and normalcy, a reality the reader can be persuaded to identify with. It may be that the talented mystery writer Laurie King has done that here in this tale of Rae Newborn, a woman who tries to escape the demons of her past by moving to a deserted island to restore a house named Folly. Unfortunately the text is undercut so badly by the usually wonderful Frank Muller--who chooses from the first page to give every sentence, description or dialogue, the same rhythm, ending with a dum-dee-dum-dum, look-out-this-is-a-thriller whisper--that it proved an insurmountable barrier for this listener.
