warning - if you value her life do not swap this with reading matter from your maiden aunt! 10 juin 2011
Par still searching - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This amazing character driven novel is a white knuckle ride through the steamy underbelly of New Orleans and its environs and centres around the sado-masochistic relationship between two larger than life characters; police captain Clarence Seymour Jefferson and psychiatrist Eugene `Cicero' Grimes, the latter named after a character played by Richard Boone in the Paul Newman western, Hombre. Jefferson, a kind of literary love child of Hank Quinlan, the malevolent force at the centre of the Orson Welles film, Touch of Evil, and a monumentally p*ssed off Mike Tyson, is central to all that ensues in this tragedy of truly Jacobean proportions.

It opens with Jefferson being called to a `domestic' featuring Callie, the once drug addled ex-prostitute wife of born again evangelist bank chief, Cleve Carter, who has threatened to blow out her brains for being the provider of `insider' information leading to a bank heist involving the theft of one million dollars. Understandably disturbed she manages to escape with her head intact and heads off to meet the mastermind for the split, Luther Grimes, Eugene's brother. With that amount of cash involved Jefferson silences her husband before setting off to find Callie. In doing so he brings into being the series of cataclysmic events that form the basis for the story that subsequently unfolds.

Brilliantly written and told at blistering pace this scandalously ignored first novel is definitely not for the faint hearted - don't say you haven't been warned!

Tim Willocks books are like fine dining after a lifetime of junk food. Give him a try, you won't be sorry.

Story was slow to unfold with a lot of psycho stuff. Then the story got good about two-thirds through it.

I know it was part of the physiological study of two of the main guys, but the torture scene seemed to take up too much of the book to me. Other than that being a little bit annoying, I still enjoyed the book. I wouldn't put it up there with The Religion, that book blew my socks off! Still a good read...
