Top Customer Reviews
This might all seem rather strange, and strange is what this book is. But it is most exquisitely written, moody and thought-provoking. The first sentence captures the quality and intensity of the book: "This - once I'd shut out predatory professors, banshees, lawyers, meths-besotted itinerants - is how I imagine it: when Christo Mercer dreams of the death of the four girls for the second time, he is filled with an apprehension bordering on obsession."
Mike Nicol is a mighty talent, and I expect he will write even finer books, but if you like crafted novels, read it.
