Richard Wisden, celebrity TV gardener, commits suicide in room 118 of a faceless hotel, or does he. His wife, Libby is on a mission to prove it is murder and hires a collection of strange characters to help her. Geoff Nicholson revels in the strange characters of the world and enjoys links and coincidences galore. Each short chapter is told from a different persons perspective; they may be a literary academic asked to understand Wisden from his books, or a photographer asked to study his last photographs for meaning. Wisden's son looks for his father too. All these people see a different person and the plot appears to pull together and point to one person. But you can be sure with Geoff Nicholson that the plot will never be straightforward. We never really get a feel for who Richard Wisden is from this novel but the short cameos of the people Libby approaches are well drawn. The novel is entertaining and sometimes funny; never take Geoff Nicholson seriously and you will love this short read. ( )
