Read full description of the books Prized Possessions:After his father’s funeral, Staff Sergeant Karl Alberg is taking a few days off, although he’d rather be busy. So, when a friend in Sechelt (on British Columbia’s Sunshine coast) asks him to help find his neighbor’s missing husband, Alberg agrees. It doesn’t take long before Alberg is fully engaged in a quest to learn where the husband is and why he left. Meanwhile, a young store clerk in Vancouver named Eddie becomes obsessed with a woman he doesn’t know, but would like to. When his clumsy attempts to connect with her turn sour, his resentment escalates into increasingly dangerous moves.
Prized Possessions is an absorbing novel about relationships about to go over the edge. While the violence is downplayed, there’s something about the situations that made me squirm with discomfort. The sense of foreboding was so strong that I was almost reluctant to turn the page at times. Yet, as the tension built I couldn’t turn those pages fast enough, especially once it became clear where the two stories would converge. It’s a terrific book written by a writer who passed away far too soon. L.R. Wright’s work deserves to live on for a long time to come.
