“At Odds with Destiny” Box set: Feature on “Double Forté” by Aaron Paul Lazar

4 Comments Book Reviews, News

cover3As I’ve mentioned a few times by now, my book “The Luck of the Weissensteiners” is part of this boxed set,  At Odds with Destiny, released March 3 and including ten full-length novels. 

I have had review posts about and interviews with P.C. Zick, Uvi Poznansky, Amalie Jahn, Brandt Legg and Janet Morris. Today I want to introduce  another author / book in the Box Set: 

Double Forté by Aaron Paul Lazar
In the deep cold of winter, threats erupt from the dark woods, spinning events out of hand—and Gus, tormented by the unexplained death of his wife, braces for the fight of his life.

Here is a 5 star review from Amazon:
“A very musical piece of literature”
1 Aug. 2006
Published on Amazon.com 13640882
Double Forté, the first of the Gus LeGarde series of mysteries written by Aaron Paul Lazar, is a chilling thriller. But this book is such a far cry from the cliché thrillers of today that it is almost the start of a new genre. This book is thriller, mystery, romance, and literature all at once. I could be done by saying it is just plain good writing, but that doesn’t seem fair for a review. I cannot possibly do it justice, but I will attempt to convey some of the unique majesty of this book. However, I will not be able to mention many specifics of the plot for fear of giving it all away.

This book is set neatly in its own world, a beautiful valley in upstate New York. The world is that of Professor LeGarde, a classical musical instructor. Music informs every part of this novel, from his worldview to the other characters, the scenes and escalation of action, right down to the prose itself. This is a very musical piece of literature with a varied tempo depending upon the scene, its intensity, such as its romance or fear. A very lyrical read.

But, please do not misunderstand me. This is not a fantasy or whimsical bit of fluff. This is a very serious, very intense novel about real characters. Lazar does a fantastic job getting inside the minds and exploring the emotions that drive all the characters. The world is very solid and presented in such a complete way that you become a part of it. We understand these people and why everything in this book occurs. That is a very nice and rare trick for an author to pull.

Double Forté is a refreshing work of handcrafted beauty, even given its nail biting nature. Lazar has crafted an original character in LeGarde, one which I am very glad to learn has an entire series dedicated to him. I strongly recommend this book to all fans of James Patterson, Iris Johanson, and Mary Higgins Clark. You will not be disappointed.

Gus LeGarde’s life essentially ended four years ago, when his beloved wife, Elsbeth, leapt from the Letchworth Gorge cliffs. These days, the music professor plays endless Chopin etudes on his antique piano and lavishes love on his family and dog–but nothing buries the pain or answers his burning questions. What made her jump? Why didn’t she say goodbye? And how will he be able to live without her? Trouble comes to Gus and his daughter, Freddie, when her arrogant husband, Harold, is caught in several love affairs, and begins to verbally abuse her. To protect his daughter and two-year-old grandson, Gus threatens to throw Harold out himself the next time he messes up. But when Harold’s law partner goes missing, a police search in the woods on Gus’s property reveals a shocking find. The mystery deepens as Gus’s innocent friend is set up to take the fall. In the deep cold of winter, threats erupt from the dark woods, spinning events out of hand–and Gus braces for the fight of his life.  41p1PBSEDNL
