Brooding

In Black House we have the beginnings of what could be a very good trilogy. There was much about this story which was finely written and carefully constructed.

At first I was not convinced about the contrivance to take our policeman “Fin” back into his childhood via the death of a bully from his school years. I was quite distracted by the possibility that the author was showing us his own childhood. This worried me initially but I warmed to it and the eventual working out of this was skilfully achieved.

I was quite engrossed by the details of the guga harvest and this provided a unique atmosphere to this thriller.
