Death Comes for the Deconstructionist by Daniel Taylor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A not so subtle critique of post-modernism. And, a decent murder mystery as well.
Jon Mote is hired by the widow of a recently deceased English professor to investigate his murder. Jon is not a detective, but has experience in research. With his sister Judy, a mentally handicapped side-kick, Jon begins to learn things about his former English professor which call into question the post-modern view of the world.
Jon also has his own demons to face, and a history of religion and abuse to come to terms with.
It’s an easy read and under 200 pages. I enjoyed it.
