5.0 out of 5 stars Black and quirky, 7 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Framed (Paperback)
I loved Holy Smoke and this book, though very different, has the same quirky black humour, a rattling good story and an interesting take on modern art.
Antoine, who hangs paintings and places sculpture in art galleries and exhibitions in Paris by day, and plays a mean game of billiards by night, is attacked in a museum during a theft and loses a hand and most of his motivation. Scorning rehabilitation he decides to investigate the reason behind the theft and this leads to more violence, more murders and a very odd billiard game indeed. It balances on the edge but never lapses into absurdity.
This book moves at a fast pace, the characters all have a degree of weirdness, and I enjoyed the art story behind the crimes. Antoine, after his initial despair in hospital, is not the man to back down before a challenge and I found him a splendid hero.
