Intriguing and puzzling, I rushed through this in two days, all the while fearing that ultimately it wouldn’t make sense (to me). Sadly, my fears were confirmed.
A back-cover blurb that began “An experimental novel disguised as a thriller” should have warned me off!
Interestingly, in the acknowledgements the author references John Franklin Bardin’s The Deadly Percheron. One of my all-time favourite books is The John Franklin Bardin Omnibus, which contains three of the best Bardin novels, including The Deadly Percheron.
