I was hooked into this by the mention of the London based Christian course that is corrupted by sex, drugs, violence and money. I attended the Alpha course which emanated from Holy Trinity Brompton in the 90s and of course, you wonder if this was the model for the book. The charismatic pastor, even the location and congregation of HTB is echoed - probably too close to the truth for some people. The story itself is the unwinding of friendships but the slight mystery of what happens to Lee wasn't satisfyingly real enough for me. This is a literary novel with much introspection and not much action. However, I enjoyed the musings on faith and evangelical belief.
