The Unknown Man by Natalie Hanson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In this thriller a freelance FBI agent is tasked with finding the missing children of the FBI's special informant. All the evidence seems to point her to one man, but this conclusion is too asymmetrical much like her own body so the agent starts to question everything this investigation leads her to some disturbing revelations. Even though everything seems lopsided can she discover the identity of the unknown man before it is too late? You will just have to read this unique story to find out.
This book is a journey of deep self discovery packaged into a mystery thriller. It has a unique plot, unusual characters, and an overall unexpected outcome. It almost reads as if the author wrote it backwards they had an idea for a dramatic ending then they worked their way towards the why and the how. The agent was disabled, but she used those disabilities to solve the case so it made sense in the end. The trip took a long time because before any action could take place several paragraphs were dedicated to either her physical or mental state. This is understandable due to the growth required, but the repetitiveness of the statements had a tendency to be tedious. How many times can one read about a sweaty chicken cutlet stuffed into a bra? I enjoyed reading this book despite this and would recommend it to anyone who likes characters archiving self discovery, thrillers, mystery, or unusual suspects.
