Some of my cherished novels with academic setting are Gentlemen and Players by Joanne Harris, The Chatham School Affair by Thomas H. Cook, and A Separate Peace by John Knowles. A search for similar books leads me to British author Robert Goddard. In a writing career spanning more than twenty years, Robert Goddard’s novels have been described in many different ways—mystery, thriller, crime, even historical romance. He is the master of the plot twist, a compelling and engrossing storyteller and one of the best known advocates for the traditional virtues of pace, plot and narrative drive. This is it. Plot twist. In reading some of the readers’ comments, Robert Goddard is a master of clever twist, intrigue and plot manipulation—essential to weekend getaway reading. The book with the highest readers’ rating, Past Caring, is out of stock, so I got Beyond Recall and Into the Blue. Have anyone read Goddard? Airport novels?
