'The Land Of Laughs' and 'The Wooden Sea', so this one 'Kissing The Beehive'
was a truly revelationary surprise, in that it was, by Carroll's standards, quite
downright NORMAL. And as you read it you half expect a dog to walk in and
start talking, or a ghost to pop down the chimney, but no...no such occurrence happens.
A simple plot sees author Sam Bayer returning to his hometown, where years ago he found
the murdered body of a local beauty, and decides to write the story for his next book.
Joining him on this journey is his quirky latest love, a lady named Veronica Lake, who
coincidentally looks just like that famous actress from years gone by.
And do you know what?
I found the whole scenario absolutely riveting!
Carroll absolutely nails this atmosphere of Film Noir, a gripping tale attempting to sift out
the real killer of that young lady all those years ago.
And the characters are painted so well you half expect to meet them in your living room,
if you ever dare to look round.
Yes, a little known gem of a book, a book that sits well in your head after you've turned that
This novel is a fair departure for Carroll, away from the strange surreal, magical realities he normally creates, however Kissing The Beehive retains the menacing atmosphere of his previous novels. The story is engaging and exciting, although I was rather hoping for it to step sideways into the bizarre, as his other stories do.
