The Girl from Long Guyland

Lara Reznik. Violet Crown, $12.99 paper (348p) ISBN 978-1-938749-03-2
Laila Levin is an IT executive in Austin, Tex., with a happy marriage and a successful career. But her life is about to get much more complicated. First her company announces a series of layoffs—and she is promoted because of her boss's affair with the CEO. One of her college friends commits suicide, and an investigator shows up at her house, asking questions about the disappearance of another college friend. Laila is forced to confront a dark part of her past that she never shared with her husband. Reznik spins an interesting albeit predictable tale. The strength of her novel is in capturing the sensibilities of the late 1960s and early 1970s. This makes up for the hiccups in dramatic tension during the book's contemporary sections. Readers—particularly those who remember the late 1960s —will find this an entertaining read.
