A Far Strange Country: Banquet of Choices by Arielle Hunter is a novel of unrest, drugs and murder. In this story set in 1968, a time of great unrest in the civilized world, Pauline and Buck Harper are trying to ride it out on their ranch. A telegram arrives, telling them that their son is in hospital following a drug overdose. On another corner, Donatello Dragghi is in California to get out of the line of fire of the Mafia. He receives a phone call, which sparks a whole chain of events, events that send him in a direction he would never have chosen. Add Parker to the mix, a man who stands accused of murder, and wait for them all to meet up, all drawn in by the actions of one man. One man, one drug-fuelled party, one unforgettable night. A night that has more questions than answers, but proves that for every action there must be a consequence.
A Far Strange Country: Banquet of Choices by Arielle Hunter is an excellent novel. I have to admit, I did judge the book by its cover and I didn’t think I would enjoy it. How wrong could I be? In a fantastic story, Ms Hunter has very cleverly woven a number of different tales together to meet in one explosive finish. And, what a finish. It’s a book that left me desperate to read the second one in the hopes that it is even better than this one. Ms Hunter knows how to write, that’s for sure, and she knows how to draw a reader in. Excellent work, bring on number 2!
