This novella is no exception, it contains all of the above which for me is the hallmark of excellence being able to retain a reader regardless of whether the subject matter is less than appealing, which certainly was the case for me. I'm not into the gory, messy minutiae of uninvited death to life in any form, but if this is your bag then you'll love this one.
Who can say what's going on in an old Edwardian house divided into four flats? Written in the first person we are introduced to the occupants by Tony Jenks, an insurance claims assessor who works closely with Kesh Grindles, a blonde haired twenty-six year old natural beauty, for whom he has a cautious, respectful, sneaking admiration - due to the fact she's married, of course. That's the front, however poor Tony is drowning in desire for her and is more or less resigned to the fact there's no chance, or so he thinks.
Hearing strange noises in the night she becomes central to his support, for this is something he'd rather not share with his companion residents. Eager to help she appears to have offered him a solution but does it work? Has she identified the cause of the terrifying noise in the first place and what kind of trouble is she storing for him with his landlord?
Once again Carter uses his social observation skills to brilliant effect, for his neighbours prove to be a totally convincing diverse bunch of characters I wouldn't want to live next to either, all having their own peculiarities which pitch into the story, heightening the curiosity and tension.
In line with this spine-chilling tale is a highly unusual conclusion to the denouement which as you will have sussed, is the conclusion but not quite the end.
I never hesitate to highly recommend David Carter's books and this is no exception. If you are looking for a fast-moving thrilling tale then this is the one for you. This brilliant author deserves to be read and I feel, regardless of genre preferences, his natural story telling ability is such, those who appreciate good writing can but enjoy his work.
