The Salinger Contract

Synopsis from Goodreads:
"Adam Langer, the narrator of this deft and wide-ranging novel by the author of the same name, tells the intertwining tales of two writers navigating a plot neither one of them could have ever imagined. There may be no other escape than to write their way out of it.

Adam is a writer and stay-at-home dad in Bloomington, Indiana, drawn into an uneasy friendship with the charismatic and bestselling thriller author Conner Joyce. Conner is having trouble writing his next book, and when a menacing stranger approaches him with an odd—and lucrative—proposal, events quickly begin to spiral out of control.

A novel of literary crimes and misdemeanors, The Salinger Contract will delight anyone who loves a fast-paced story told with humor, wit, and intrigue."

I liked how the story has a unique concept, somewhat a story within a story. However, it failed to sustain my excitement and curiosity to the point where it was on the verge of disappointment. There was less action described and more details that seemed predictable. Although the author made sure to apply some details to make every character relatable and relevant, it was not strong enough to capture the reader's interest. Though The Salinger Contract was not an action-packed fast-paced novel, it was still a nice read with a certain twist incorporated.
