Travel Writing - Book Review

Published: August 2008
Travel Writing - Peter Ferry C+

Pete Ferry is an English teacher and part time travel writer who finds himself obsessed with the death of a beautiful stranger. The obsession consumes him and eventually causes friction between Pete and his live-in girlfriend, Lydia. The dynamic between Lydia and Pete is the most intriguing part of the story. The classroom banter between Pete and his students is also significant and well played. But, the travel writing angle was a bore and I wasn't buying Pete as an amateur sleuth. This isn't a bad debut novel, nor is it a very memorable one.
