From the opening sentences of this gripping thriller, the reader is kept confused but captivated. You’re never quite sure what’s going on; we start with the central character in darkness, a captive, scrabbling to escape.

The canvas extends into rapid action as Brazill scatters clues to the back story. The narrative weaves between bleak banter and gritty backstreet noir, touching on the supernatural but firmly grounded in modern reality.

The writing is superbly stylish, with some sentences honed until not a single superfluous syllable remains. The action sequences are punchy, deliberately cold, hard-edged and unforgiving. And when it comes, the final resolution is both shocking and infinitely sad.
