Goldilocks is vintage Coburn, the Coburn of Sweetheart, The Babysitter, and Love Nest. This is a story of a New England town where all the deals have been quietly cut, the cops have traded their souls to crime bosses, and the crime boss of crime bosses-a beautiful woman from the wrong side of the tracks-has married up, into the WASPs, and her name decorates ever corner and library in town. And into this quiet swamp with its smooth surface drops Goldilocks-tall and blond, with exquisite blue eyes, the new boy in town, and so vicious he makes the rest of them know that life before Goldilocks was like a fairy tale. Small wonder The New York Times crime book critic Newgate Callendar writes, "Natural storytellers are not too common but Mr. Coburn is one." An angry yet still sexy widow becomes the prey of Vietnam vet Goldilocks, but he, too, gets caught in the web of evildoing and gets his just deserts, though not till the town is turned end to end. No question-Coburn can write up a storm
Love nest by Andrew Coburn( Book )
10 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in English and held by 341 libraries worldwide
The New York Times said of Andrew Coburn,?Natural storytellers are not too common, but Mr. Coburn is one.? And Publishers Weekly praised his previous novel Sweetheart as?so good that it is almost criminal.? Love Nest, Andrew Coburn's gripping new thriller, is certain to gain the same critical acclaim. The murder of a young and alluring prostitute is at the core of this compelling story of small-town crime, corruption, and desire. In her brief stay in Andover, Massachusetts, her charm and beauty had touched the lives of many of the town's leading citizens, not the least of whom is the investigator of her murder, Sergeant Sonny Dawson. His tenacious search for the killer uncovers a netherworld of characters that shocks his sensibilities but does not dampen his thirst to solve the case. The taut psychological drama, the agonizingly suspenseful plot, and the deft prose that mark Andrew Coburn's writing of Love Nest consolidate his stature and his fictional territory#x97;the authentic New England world he has staked out for himself. And in his portrait of a small New England town, Coburn reveals the sophistication and breadth of a most gifted novelist
