I finished High Flyer by Susan Howatch last night. Great read! Every time I read a new Susan Howatch book, I am struck by how amazingly she can weave characters from past books into the storyline of the new book. The best thing is that although they are series books, they can stand alone, too. She provides enough character development in a single book that a reader doesn’t have to have read the previous books. Yet, she does this without what I like to call boring “info dumping.” However, if you have read the previous books, you feel like you really know the old characters–like you have some sort of inside scoop. There is so much to be said about High Flyer, I won’t even try. Just remember it if you are looking for a new novel to read. You won’t be sorry.
Now I am just waiting for the third and last book in the series to be published.
