The Moving Words Review:

Set in June 1988 in Oyster Bay, Long Island, the story starts in the home of Detective Lieutenant Lee Osborne, beginning with a casual game of pool among Lee, his son Lee Jr., and colleagues Detective John Weeks and Frank Turner. As the game progresses with competitive banter, young Ronald, Lee’s other son, inadvertently interrupts his father’s shot. Ronald thought he would get scolded, however, he only created a light-hearted moment of bonding among friends and family.

As the story moves forward, Lee Sr. juggles his duties as a police officer with his roles as a father and husband. The story takes a dramatic turn when Lee feels he is being watched and subsequently finds himself in a dangerous situation involving a pursuit and an explosive encounter. Lee Sr. was killed instantly. And this laid the groundwork for themes of family, duty, and suspense, leaving readers on edge as the family faces a traumatic event. How will the Osborne family cope with the aftermath? And what are the motives behind the chilling pursuit of Lee Sr.?

One of the most commendable aspects of the book is its deep dive into character development. Each character is meticulously crafted, from Lee’s authoritative yet caring nature to Lee Jr.’s earnest ambition and athletic prowess. The dynamics within the characters are portrayed with an authenticity that resonates, making the bonds palpable and characters relatable. Blair also writes with detailed descriptions that transport readers directly into surroundings and events. The author’s ability to evoke a sense of place provides a solid foundation for each of the unfolding drama.
