5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended 28 Feb. 1998
By - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was surprised by the quality of this book. The prose is smooth and flowing and the plot, ver simple, yet keeps you interested. It's all here, class hatred, the criminal mind, depraviation at one end, then love, compassion and religioud belief. Brilliant, one of my favourite books.
