Synopsis: 337 follows the life of Samuel Darte whose mother vanished when he was in his teens. It was his brother, Tom who found her wedding ring on the kitchen table along with the note. While their father pays the price of his mother’s disappearance, Sam learns that his long-estranged Gramma is living out her last days in a nursing home nearby. Keen to learn about what really happened that day and realising the importance of how little time there is, he visits her to finally get the truth. Soon it’ll be too late and the family secrets will be lost forever. Reduced to ashes. But in a story like this, nothing is as it seems. Less.
My thoughts: This book was very well written. The first thing which caught my attention that this book portrayed that how anxiety and loss can affect someone’s mental health.
Sam and his struggles literally gave me chills. The domestic drama of this book with a taste of thrill was the most attractive part of the plot.I’m not gonna give spoilers because I think readers should definitely read this book and unveil the suspense on their own.
My only niggle was that the first few chapters were a bit slow. It took some time for me to catch the thrill.
There’s something else that caught my attention the moment I received my hardcover copy, the title of the book! The title looks like LEE if you hold the book upside down.
I loved the subtle writing style and the way the author used his precious words. Contemporary mystery lovers should must give this book a try.
