Rate this:
For twenty years, bestselling author James W. Hall has been one of the most highly respected thriller writers around. With last year's Body Language, Hall garnered acclaim from authors like James Patterson and Michael Connelly, and from reviewers in publications like People and The New York Times. Now, Hall serves up Rough Draft, which is at once both his most personal and his most gripping book to date.

A few years ago, while browsing in a used bookstore, Hall found a copy of one of his early novels full of strange marginal notes and underlined passages and other cryptic messages. Fascinated by these weird hieroglyphics and unable to get them out of his mind, he used this as the basis for Rough Draft, a novel about a woman crime novelist who stumbles across a similar book and finds in those marginal notes what seems to be a direct message from the killer of her parents.

Hannah Keller's struggle to find her parents' killer, and at the same time protect her son, takes the reader on an extraordinary ride through James Hall's best thriller to date.
