Read full description of the books:I had a nice time reading this easy-to-read book. It's good for a weekend light read. I chose to read this book because it had so many copies in the second-hand bookstores and when I checked its average GR rating, it was 3.83 so it must not really be bad.
I thought that Alex Kava was a male and I so I thought that this book belonged to my category of guy literature in the same league as Robert Ludlum, Jeffrey Archer, John Grisham, etc. I was surprised to realize that Alex Kava was a she and this book, although could still be classified as guy lit has more drama (family drama to be specific), than the usual books.
The family drama is provided by the main characters: the mother, Melanie, her son Charlie and her brother Jared. The mother and son have been living on money they generate as small-time con artist (or petty thieves). When Jared comes out from the penitentiary, he gets himself and Charlie some guns and suggests to his sister that they rob a bank in Nebraska. During the said robbery, 4 people die from gunshot wounds. Jared and Charlie come out from the bank empty handed. They don't want to tell Melanie what has happened inside the bank. The title of the book "One False Move" actually refers to the incident that led to the incidental death of the people inside the bank. The revelation at the end of the book is very dramatic.
The prose is ordinary but there are some nice quotable quotes particularly Kava's effective use of Emily Dickenson's line Hope is a thing with feathers. I did not know this line but it immediately created a picture of a white dove trying to fly out from a box or a cage. Kava really knows how to write particularly on how to engage her readers with meaningful metaphors and imagery that imprint scenes in their minds.
Quite a nice piece of work. I don't think the publisher over-printed this book because if this was marketed properly, this should not have been flooding the second-hand bookstores with unsold old copies. What a waste. Tsk tsk.
