November Road (Berney) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
[T]his superior novel from Edgar winner Lou Berney melds crime fiction with a tale about people reinventing themselves, played out during a cross-country automobile trip.…An emotional story about the power of love and redemption through sacrifice with the backdrop of a crucial historical moment.
Associated Press


(Starred review) [A] moving novel.… While Berney creates nail-biting suspense …, the book’s power derives from Charlotte, who finds hidden strength as she confronts unexpected challenges. This is much more than just another conspiracy thriller.
Publishers Weekly


(Starred review)  [Berney] explores relationships between two complicated and realized characters. With depth and genre crossover appeal, this literary crime thriller will please fans of Dennis Lehane or George Pelecanos and also satisfy a wider audience. —Gregg Winsor, Johnson Cty.

Library Journal


(Starred review) Berney bends his notes exquisitely, playing with the melody, building his marvelously rich characters while making us commit completely to the love story, even though we hear the melancholy refrain and see the noir cloud lurking in the sky. Pitch-perfect fiction.
Booklist


(Starred review) As a shocked nation mourns the assassination of John F. Kennedy, two lost souls looking for a new chance at life find each other along the wide-open Western highways.… As the title suggests, there is an autumnal, melancholic sense of loss at the heart of the novel, yet… [it] is the kind of loss that gives way to a new world order. Perfectly captures these few weeks at the end of 1963.
