Nowhere Man is the successful debut novel from Australian author John M. Green and is set in Sydney. The novel begins with Sonya returning from her early morning run only to find husband Michael has left her, leaving a mysterious note on the bed for her to find.
We soon learn that Michael was a very private man working from home and trading on the stock market. When Sonya discovers his private computer files, she realises Michael has been keeping secrets from her the entire time they've been together.
Looking at his letter with fresh eyes, Sonya begins to suspect Michael may not have left her voluntarily and sets out determined to find the truth.
Nowhere Man is an economic thriller with a science fiction twist and the plot and pace had me turning the pages well into the night.
I thoroughly enjoyed Nowhere Man, and look forward to reading more from this author in the future. (Click here to read an interview with the author).
My rating = ****
P.S. I'm so excited to have received a personal message from the author himself:
"I'm so thrilled you enjoyed my first novel, Nowhere Man. Thank you so much for taking the time to read it and for writing such a great review on My Four Bucks."
Isn't it great when writers take the time to interact with their readers directly? Fabulous!
