A roller coaster of a thriller,
This review is from: Big Dipper (Kindle Edition)
The main character, Julian has a good solid career and an expensive taste in soft furnishings and apparently has it all. It would seem that he would never take risks or allows himself to be wrong-footed. But he has a secret yearning for erotica that goes beyond S & M and thinks he has met the perfect man who can indulge him in his fantasy. But that is just the start.
Then other characters enter the story, each with their own particular foibles and links to Julian and all drawn with equal skill. I found the story addictive and thought the way the reader is led to believe one perfectly feasible reason for the murder of Kim only to read on and discover there is another reason, is plotted with superb expertise. The truth behind Kim's murder is cleverly interwoven, making sense of party scenes, references to the political landscape and seemingly passing characters that the reader comes across throughout the narrative.
Big Dipper is a superb title and not only reflects Julian's emotions as he finds himself in dangerous situations but also reflects the way the plot twists and turns taking you on a roller coaster of a read.
