Terence Blacker's The Angel Factory
is a dark and delicious tale of a world where nothing is quite as it seems. Thomas Wisdom's life is almost too perfect, and he begins to feel that there must be a chink in the perfection. Tom's best friend, a boy whose life could be described as anything but perfect, thinks he may have the answer to Thomas' questions. But as they are drawn closer and closer to the truth, the pair realise that they are living moving into a world where nothing is quite as it seems.
Blacker draws the reader into a dark and treacherous world, bringing a totally mesmerising and ultimately disturbing vision of good and evil to powerful life. The story of Tom's search for the truth is thrilling in the extreme, and as he draws closer to the reality of his life, the intensity and terror of his situation is palpable. This is a fine thriller from a fine author who has, in The Angel Factory balanced great storytelling skills with a truly page-turning plot that, to coin yet another cliché, will have readers holding on to the edge of their seats.
