COMPLICIT, by Wendy M. Li

Finished Ben Macintyre’s The Spy and the Traitor in the wee hours (Took self 5 days!) and began the next book on her reading list: Wendy M. Li’s Complicit. Very much taken with this novel’s snappy beginning.

MC is teaching film class and the students don’t seem all that mature.

Sample dialogue, pp. 5 – 6:

“Who are some film characters that you really remember? Come on, name a few.”

“James Bond,” someone shouts out.

“Luke Skywalker,” another guy says.


“Robert de Niro in Taxi Driver,” some kid says, and I know he thinks he’s showing off his film knowledge, because he just referenced a movie made before 1980.

“Hannibal Lecter.”
