Beverley starts to believe she has finally pieced her life together - until a young man starts appearing wherever she goes. Beverley is convinced that he's stalking her. One dark evening the stalker gets past her security door and calls through her letterbox. He tells her not to be scared. He says that he is Malakay, her son.
The Gospel According to Cane is a novel about inner-city youth in contemporary London. It's a meditation on pain and loss, the burden of heritage, and how the past can blur the present. It's about trust and the perceived lack of trust, disillusion, and its consequences. A world where everyone is the victim, and no one is to blame.

Nice to see a novel that takes some of the suspense features of the popular novel and plays with them. Ambiguity and beautiful use of language throughout. Will stay with me long after I try to get to sleep.
