True Crime is an edge-of-the-seat suspense novel that graphically portrays the final moments leading up to a condemned killer's appointment with the executioner. The plot is familiar but convincing: An inmate, Frank Beachum, denies any involvement in the murder of a young pregnant woman. His only chance for survival lies in the hands of a reporter, Steven Everett.

For andrew klavan’s Tour de force. The most suspenseful and exciting novel I have read in the last couple of years. a classi. rue Crime moves like a tornado, its plot turning in tighter and tighter circles until it explodes in an ending that will leave readers exhausted. His characters are vivid and compelling, his observations on the human condition perceptive, and his darkly humorous prose masterful. The adrenaline was flowing so strongly near the end, I actually thought my heart might give out. A wonderful, funny, heartbreaking, powerful book.

The plot of this book has been often used in the past, so I did not have high expectations for it. I was presently surprised though to discover that I liked it. It is very well written, but most remarkable is that Andrew Klavin has masterfully crafted a powerful page turning thriller around a very flawed main character using a well worn and mediocre plot. Not many authors are skilled enough to do this. Newspaper reporter Steve Everett is a pig and a stupid jerk.. He is a serial womanizer and is having an affair with his bosses' wife. Faced with the loss of job, his wife and 2 year old son, due to his bad behavior, he somehow rises to the occasion and goes all-out in a frantic last minute effort to prove the innocence of a condemned man on Death Row. In the end Everett is still a jerk, but he becomes a likeable jerk. It’s a fast moving and very intense story, which all takes place on the day of the execution, scheduled for midnight. The only criticism I have is that it could have been more tightly edited to eliminate some of the excessive detail. That said, I still highly recommend reading this…you will not be disappointed. This effort shows that Klavin is the real deal.

Congratulations, Mr Klavan! All the classic devices of the crime thriller, and some new ones, but nothing feels contrived. A condemned-cell drama", but miraculously fresh , with an almost praeternatural avoidance of clichés. I honestly would not have though that the classic situation could be so fresh. Our hero is a grievously flawed man lbut redeemed triumphantly by love--of just two things his son, and the truth. More precisely of truth-telling. The humour is good to excellent. There is deep psychological accuracy in the depiction of the wrongly condemned man, his unwitting persecutors, his would-be saviour, spiritual comforters good and bad, the stricken wife.... all parts are written with sympathy and insight. Considerable learning is worn very lightly (there is a mwtafictional vignette where Aristotle's Poetics is brought in with a deftness that had my smiling for hours. Read this book! You will want to read it again.

Klavan certainly knows his way around language, using it to both paint vivid and uniquely described scenes, as well as to explore a cascade of ideas along the way. A bit thin on characterization and convincing dialogue. The strength of the narrative is the ideas.

I found the story addictive, well-written, and profound all at the same time. It will be fun to see how close the movie version comes to capturing the excellent qualities of this book. Thank you, Mr. Klavan.

Good lord, this book has you racing toward the end, and when you get there you have to get up, take a break from the Kindle, pace around with anxiety, before you can get back to it. What writing. What a writer. Others have told the storyline, but until you read it you have no idea what a great book this is. Klavan needs a new agent - he should be as famous as Stephen King. Male characters outstanding, female not as good but they are secondary. Only negative that occurred is that I had to skip some of the paragraphs in my hurry to the end. A woman can only take so much.

Klavan is a terrific writer that pulled me into the story and made it very difficult to stop reading. This is a different kind of thriller that gets you into the head of multiple characters. It has changed the way I will think about the death penalty from now on.

"True Crime" by Andrew Klavan is a keeper! I have just finished reading it for the third time, a first for me. The writing is so well done that it holds your attention from start to finish. I have several Klavan books, but this is by far the best. Highly recommend it if you like thrillers and, even if you don't, I think you'll enjoy this well-written book.
Did not realize that it was a true crime book but done in a little different way. I like Klavan's other books much better
