dark and dangerous
CB has such a brilliant way of bringing the characters to life
all of MBs other books have the same flavour
the tension he evokes with his phrasing
the bathroom scene - CB was so blunt i had to rewind to really hear what i heard!
A lucky find in the garden leads to a series of disasters.
Generally, Lee is not a likeable character, I found myself wanting to smack him and I felt sorry for Jenny, his wife, for putting up with him for so long.
It had the essence of the Shallow Grave film about it but with a one view perspective as we watch Lee become more and more paranoid and go to greater lengths to protect his find.
The bathroom scene was gruesome and in perfect MB style, as was the twist at the end, which I thought was really well planned out. Even with a second read I could not see it coming.
