    Bisher kannte ich den Autor nur von der Humorfront einen b sen Thriller hatte ich ihm gar nicht zugetraut und war deshalb auch sehr gespannt auf diesen Wechsel in ein neues Genre Der Anfang beginnt auch wirklich gut Kanada, unendliche Weiten, ein toter ausgeweideter Hund und der Hinweis auf eine vertuschte Vergangenheit inmitten der momentan noch

    Had a long journey so was able to read 3 4 of the book on the coach Really gripping thriller I had to finish it as soon as I got home.

    John Niven is perhaps better known for darkly witty satires, Kill Your Friends , The Amateurs and The Second Coming so I was interested to read this, his first foray into the world of crime writing with the skilful insertion of a J to differentiate this from his normal fare And what a completely gripping, criminal smorgasbord of brilliant and blood

    I ve read all but one of John Niven s novels, which are pretty diverse in subject and sometimes hard hitting, but until now I d avoided this, his first foray into crime thriller writing under the moniker John J Niven The blurb sold the book as a page turner, and in general this is what I found.Told from the point of view of Donald Miller, a Scottish jo

    I rated this book a 4star as I enjoyed the read as I couldn t put it down The style of writing does just make you want to keep going which i love in a book That said I felt that the gruesome details were somewhat unnecessary in order to create the tension and that this was the authors way of horrifying the reader It becomes apparent about half way throu

    I ve enjoyed John Niven s other novels, and thrillers are a dirty little joy of mine How would someone who basks in dark humor and vulgarity handle this genre The answer surprisingly well The narrator sets about retelling his grisly past via frame story, with occasional flashbacks to his childhood explaining his dark past You don t spend the entire book

    A strange one Not very thrilling for a thriller and there are far too many coincidences in the plot, but it s still oddly readable with an interesting narrator Worth a read but probably not a re read.
