The Tenth Man - E. William Podojil
I found out about this book through The Eelhouse, a wonderful B&B in one of my favorite cities on earth, Amsterdam. Apparently the Eelhouse is a setting in the book, and one of the characters is based on the owner. Overall I enjoyed this book, it was a serviceable thriller that didn't have any more clunky dialogue or typos than many current "bestsellers." I liked the way the author fleshed out the characters and I didn't mind some of the more far-fetched things, as they are part of a thriller and make it more enjoyable. I liked his characterization of a serial killer, and how he portrayed the psychology of that character.
