* Stephen Embry’s 5***** review of CASE CLOSED
Posted by Lew Weinstein on May 21, 2014
Well worth reading and thinking about.
Conspiracy novels usually have suspense, plausibility and complexity. Initial unsuspected contacts are gradually revealed to be causes, and the truth is revealed. Case Closed has two of the three, plausibility and complexity, but not much suspense. However, this is intentional, since it is not really a conspiracy novel, but rather part of the indictment genre.
Indictment novels often begin with a hypothesis and develop it by logic and reason. These tools are used remarkably effectively by Mr. Weinstein to lay out the case that high placed government officials used the events of September 11, 2001 [and after that] for their own personal purposes and sacrificed the innocents to to cover up crimes that floated close to their homes.
The author jettisons suspense in the forward where the conclusion is largely revealed, and then employs plausibility and complexity to paint a fictional but credible account that is chilling.
