5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 9 Jan 2012
This review is from: The Child Who (Hardcover)
The Child Who, the third novel by Lelic, reinforces my view that he is a talented and exciting writer. He is not afraid to tackle difficult subjects as demonstrated again in The Child Who, a novel that focuses on the murder of a child by a child and the surrounding case. Lelic, not only shows us the fallout of such a terrible crime on the families involved and the response of the public, but delves deeper into the impact such as act has on the solicitor who handles the case and his family.

The characters are believeable and the prose tight and sparse (a feature of Lelics writing that I have always enjoyed). I was drawn into this book right from the start, and was gripped until it's conclusion.

A story that will stay in my mind and keep me thinking for a long time. Fantastic!
