This review is from: Falling Angel (Paperback)
I have read this book five times and seen the film at least as many, but I never grow tired of it. It is a unique and brilliant work. You start of by thinking that you are reading a genre detective story - hard nosed private eye hired to find missing pop singer etc etc. The book gradually opens out into something much, much bigger, until you realise that what we are dealing with here is the very interface of good and evil, and what is at stake is the detective's immortal soul. To go any further would be to spoil the story for those who don't know it.
This is simply the best and most rivetting thriller I have ever read. How I wish I had thought up a story as good as this! It deserves to sell ten million copies. I would give it six stars if I could.
