Review by: Beverley Oswald on Feb. 20, 2013 : star star star star star
An unusual story of revenge, told as a suspenseful thriller with'dementia' portrayed vividly, genuinely, and believably in various areas and characters throughout.
The descriptions are very realistic, often rather sordid, but obviously related from intimate knowledge by a talented very able author with good quality writing.
There is an intriguing, gripping and very well planned plot - the brilliant descriptive style bringing reality to the fore
I thoroughly recommend this book as a very enjoyable, well written read, -- and one which grips the reader to the final curtain.

“Demented” has a gripping plot in combination with political, psychological, philosophical and sexual elements which make the reading really interesting, intriguing and enjoyable. Style and lexical richness of the book are of the highest standard. The plot of the book and the form chosen would make thrilling scenario for a movie. I would recommend this book to readers who like good quality literature and to film-makers.
