Twisted, dark and surprising
on April 15, 2012
I've been a big fan of Adamson's BIlly Chaka books and my high hopes for this new novel were not disappointed.
It's a departure from the neon-flooded Tokyo of his earlier novels, to the deep, dark and twisted back-alleys of Prague. And our hero, Lee Holloway, is far less in control that Billy Chaka ever was. The novel follows his descent through a nightmarish sequence of mysterious events that are described with Adamson's typical flourish for fast, dark action. A rich and supple historical background adds to the atmosphere of the story, and there is a jarring twist that makes the reader question many of the previous conclusions about the main character. Like many good books, it leaves the reader wanting more.
