If you had finished the book, I think you would have found it less random and senseless than the early parts suggest. But "disturbing" I won't argue with.

In the year of publication, this won a Dagger award here for best first crime novel. It's a very visual, cinematic kind of book which made me suspect that the author is a film writer.
