A violent adult story,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vicious Circle (Hector Cross Novels) (Kindle Edition)
Disturbing though nonetheless quite gripping if uncharacteristic Smith novel. The Cross in this sequel somehow just isn't quite as believable as before, and, by Smith's past standards, a relatively lazy effort.
Descriptions of London cannot be first hand - places I know well appear deeply unconvincing and local language lacks authenticity. A shame that I found myself less inthralled than usual by an author who has given so much escapist pleasure before.
