Marathon Man

Marathon Man - William Goldman What a brilliant book! Excellently drawn characters; plot twists and turns; murder, suspense and betrayal.I've seen the film adaptation a few times, but lastly some years ago, so I had the dual advantage of Dustin Hoffman and Laurence Olivier reprising their parts in my head (perfect casting) but couldn't clearly remember the plot, and got all the mystery, too.The early chapters follow several seperate strands, building suspense because you KNOW that they are all connected. The way that Goldman gathers the threads together and delivers a wholly satisfying conclusion is just masterful.Read this book and enjoy - but don't plan any dental work any time soon!
