I have read Forester's Hornblower series and African Queen. Forester is such a good writer I decided to try out one of his other books. This book was published in 1930. Forester creates an atmosphere of chilling suspense in a story that has one avidly wanting to know what happens next. It is different from our modern stories where we are trying to discover who did it or why they did it. In this story we know who did it and why, we are waiting for them to get caught. The story takes place in 1920's London. Morris works for an advertising agency and is caught with two other men by their boss for taking bribes. Morris makes Harrison (his boss) have an accident. As the story unfolds we see the moral decline of Morris as he finds murder a way of solving his problems with people. I will not spoil the story for you needless to say the story takes twists and turn as we chew our nails. It is important to remember this book is written in 1930 and must be enjoyed and judged on that basis. Ric Jerrom does a good job reading the book.
