Rock Around The Clock,
This review is from: The Girl With A Clock For A Heart (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's the classic story of boy meets girl, girl screws boy over, boy spends twenty odd years brooding about the experience, boy runs into girl again, girl screws him over even harder. It's a decent thriller, one might argue that it's a little misogynistic but that's the nature of the beast once we venture into noir territory, I guess. The writing is okay, although I always tend to measure this stuff against the Richard Stark template, and it falls someway short in that regard. The ending suggests a sequel might be in the works, and probably a film, and maybe even a novelty clock. A novelty clock would, actually, be exceptionally cool. I'm sure I can rely on my friends at the publishers to send one to the usual address.
