RARA-AVIS: Recent read Anuvver Brit

Hello Avians

I have just read Painkillers by Simon Ings, a London/Hong Kong set thriller.

HB? Mmm, gangsters and the like, lots of heavy drinking as well. Noir? Yes, I would say so. Any good? Absolutely. I really enjoyed the 'slow reveal' pacing. Some interesting examination of pain, pleasure and corruption, and, I believed in the characters. I would reccomend this to anyone on the list. Brief to avoid spoilers.

Cheers all, Colin.
