A particular novel I’ve been looking forward to reading is Trash of the Counts by Vincent A. McClean. McClean’s novel is set in Savannah, Georgia and is one of my favorites.
Trash of the count’s family begins as a story about a young boy, Jay, whose brother died during World War II. It’s a tragic event that’s been plaguing Jay for a long time but he doesn’t know why. With help from his father and his two grandmothers, he finally discovers why his brother died.
The young boy now has to rebuild his life after losing his brother. In the process, he gets into trouble with his first love, who he barely knows and has a lot of motives to get back at him.
Trash of the Counts is a character-driven novel. All of its characters are complex and well developed. There are two main female characters, Jena and Oksana, and they’re also two-dimensional. I’m not saying they’re not developed but their relationship with each other is not very deep.
The main characters of the story are Jay and his mother, Joan, who has been looking for her husband. His grandfather, Milton is the main person in Jay’s life to help him through this hard time. The novel is also set at first in the 1940’s and then in the mid-to-late-20th century.
Trash of the Counts by Vincent A. McClean is very readable. It’s highly entertaining and if you are looking for a novel to read that is full of action and mystery, this is one of your best bets. The action sequences are well-paced and exciting, and the story is filled with twists and turns. The action sequences in this novel are very well done and hold the interest of the reader.
Trash of the Counts is in fact one of my favorite novels so far this year. I love its narrative and its compelling plot. Trash of the Counts has been rated highly by various critics. This novel will make you long for more novels by McClean.
McClean’s novel is a very well written and exciting novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. I highly recommend Trash of the Counts by Vincent A. McClean.
