Description

Houston publishes so many books a year that he can't possibly write them himself. He has a ghost team; writers, agents, publishers. So when he takes a year out to write something of quality, a novel that will win prizes, a lot of people stand to lose their livelihoods. Now Houston, the prime suspect in his wife's murder, has disappeared. He could be anywhere and there are many who'd like to find him.

Commentaires

"A high-concept novel tackled in unabashed fashion." ( Independent)
"A cracking thriller ... the story unfolds at a white-knuckle pace with a sense of the unknown that is genuinely disturbing." ( The Times)

Great mystery/thriller - great performance

Great story. Really enjoyed the twists and the inherent irony. The reading was one of the best I've heard so far.

Add Kerr to your list. Do it now.

Kerr meters out the suspense, keeping things on the boil all the time, none of it spoiled by formula and none of it predictable. He is a deft hand at dialog and the plot is tight and plausible. No heroic papering over holes at the end. Well, much less than I'm used to, and much more artfully done.

After adding Kerr, add Nigel Carrington. He really brings this book to life, and given the abundance of dialog of this book, good narration is particularly important. Are all Kerr's books like this? Don't know, this is my first. But I'm eager to jump into March Violets to find out.

Definitely not his best

Would you try another book from Philip Kerr and/or Nigel Carrington?

Really enjoy Philip Kerr's novels, especially the Bernie Gunther series. This book, though, is lacking. The story is ok but nothing special. The narration, however, is exceptional.
