A wonderful book,
This review is from: Monstrum (Paperback)
Quite simply, the greatest crime/detective novel I have ever encountered. The premise itself is fascinating, the plotting is a work of genius and the beauty of Mr James' prose is immensely satisfying. I read this in three sittings and I am still turning it over in my mind. A very rich book with echoes of Martin Cruz Smith and Robert Harris. I have recently acquired the next installment, The Fortune Teller, which I intend to devour in one sitting!
