While 'Visitants'. captured me and my attention and held it leaving me breathless with admiration for Randolph Stow, I had to work a little and think a little with this and well it was just different.
After the thought and consideration the book deserves, my rating would rise. I had not long finished Visitants and my listening enjoyment was filtered or biased by that book.
This is a murder book .that captures the fear, suspicion, doubt ,loss and self examination of people in the town. There is the gut withering sadness, loneliness and yes, hope not .often .revealed in murder books.
This is a book for them that like a challenge and not an escape.
And it, like other of Stow's books needs the reader to take a long walk and just let it all rummage through prejudice, fear. and real human contact.
