Rosamond Palmer reviewed on July 6, 2014

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

This psychological thriller is a great page turner. Set in Hastings, on the south coast of England, the protagonist, Chief Inspector Anthony Nemo tracks down a serial killer or killers. The winter east wind and drizzle creates a chilling atmosphere as Nemo in drawn into a world of closest transvestites and bizarre clues. The author’s authentic use of the geography and local history combines a clever weave of actual events with fictitious murders. This novel will have special appeal for local residents and visitors.
JB doesn’t hang about, by the end of chapter three, Nemo has two murders to solve and neither he nor I (the reader) has any idea who did them or why.
As the plot thickens and quickens, Jonathan Broughton exposes Nemo’s own duplicity and that of his work colleagues and the victims and their families. The pressure Nemo experiences hisses as he becomes ever more exhausted and isolated. Not only does the noose snare the victims, it snares the reader and sends them with considerable speed to the next grisly murder.
The climatic end hardly allowed for me to turn the pages fast enough. I hope the author writes more about this likeable and original point of view character.
