The Investigation of Ariel Warning

Robert Kalich

Macadam Cage, Apr 19 2012, $24.00

ISBN: 9781596923720

 

Identical twins Adam and David Remler want to film the former’s novel.  They hire Ariel Warning to help them make their movie.  Ariel and David begin a romance, but she soon has an affair with Adam while still seeing his sibling.  Adam feels guilty about betraying his brother but cannot resist Ariel’s allure; so he attempts to conceal from David his tryst with Ariel.

 

His esteem shattered and filled with remorse with what he is doing to David behind his back; Adam feels a need to protect the brother who for the first time in their lives he has acted disloyal towards.  He investigates Ariel with an inquiry that sends him to America and Asia as each new clue leads to increasing confusion and “warning” to beware.

 

This engaging amateur sleuth also looks deep at the connection between identical twins.  The mystery of Ariel is very alluring though in many ways it is more a self-awareness journey as Adam discovers who he is as a single entity.  The twins’ aspects start strongly by establishing their personalities, but become a redundant distractor that takes away from the enticing Investigation of Ariel Warning.
