I just finished Broken River by J. Robert Lennon. The author uses a “POV” called the Observer throughout the novel. Some readers may have a problem with this as the Observer is not human, but instead it is a presence; a watching, moving, learning presence. Otherwise the book is basically a fast moving, short, well-written crime novel. I liked the insights into human nature and relationships, while not always liking the characters. If you like to be taken aback just a bit by your books then Broken River is for you.
