Just finished my review of this John Travis novel.
It's amazing! For crime fiction lovers and Machen lovers.
And cat-lovers will love it, too. In fact, I *became* a cat-lover for the first time during the reading of this book!

Seriously, it's a seriously great novel.

I picked this up at WHC and I'm looking forward to reading it very much. I loved his collection "Mostly Monochrome Stories" and can't wait to get back to the world of feline noir!

Des, this review is incredibly good and as always intelligent in its literary analysis. Your references to a plethora of outside material, which was un-knowingly echoed in the story by John, are astonishing by their inclusion. I thank you for this, as it provides me with something to point to in support of the book's worth which is far more considered a view than my usual reason for this novel: "It's awesome! Read this book!" Heartfelt, certainly, but hardly compelling on any but the most visceral of levels.

I haven't read it yet but my daughter loves it! She didn't talk much to anyone until she had finished it and then sent John some comments about how great she thought it was.
