Moon Dance

Author: S. P. Somtow



Synopsis:
A man is locked in a mental institution. He is suspected of being a notorious serial killer. A journalist comes to write book on his story only to discover a man suffering from multiple personalities and a mythical Indian folklore concerning shape shifters. As the writer uncovers more of the story, she finds out their family histories are linked.

My Take:
This is a massive book clocking in at around 550 pages. It is crammed full of beauty, mystery, and terror. It's amazing to me that an author born in Thailand and raised in the UK can write so detailed about the Old West America. He obviously did the research.
The tale effortlessly moves between the emerging young West of the mid 1800's and the 1960's while slowly making the connection between characters from both eras with savage and seductive writing.
A gripping tale.

Rating: So Good
