Letty Dobesh is one of my favorite characters of all time. She is so complex that, as a reader, you want more, more, more. Why does she do the things she does? Who hurt her in the past? So many questions and this book didn't answer nearly enough of them. The addition of the contract killer is unique in that they both have a problem past. Now I want to know about both characters and their interactions are amazing. As a reader I would like to think that they met each other for a reason and it will work out in the end. Sappy, yes, but that's how these characters make you feel. You will want to pull for them. The small town environment that she grew up in is interesting as is his close knit family that he was disowned from. Not only did I love the book, I enjoy the television show as well. It is rare that an author's words come through on the screen, but this one is a winner. Well done, Blake Crouch.
Two-episode series premiere on TNT November 15th, Tuesdays 9/8c.
Fresh out of prison and fighting to keep afloat, Letty Dobesh returns to her old tricks burglarizing suites at a luxury hotel. While on the job, she overhears a man hiring a hit man to kill his wife. Letty may not be winning any morality awards, but even she has limits. Unable to go to the police, Letty sets out to derail the job, putting herself on a collision course with the killer that entangles the two of them in a dangerous, seductive relationship.
Good Behavior comprises three interlinked novellas (The Pain of Others, Sunset Key, and Grab), which together form a novel-length portrait of Blake Crouch’s all-time favorite character creation, Letty Dobesh. This edition is the complete Letty Dobesh collection.
