At Death's Door
Tuesday, July 5, 2005

At Death's Door by Robert Barnard is an enjoyable yarn about relationships, family, trust, hatred, and loathing. It feels typically British in its details and sensibility and the writing and character are superb. To be fair, it is a bit slow going at times -- there is not always all that much there there -- and some of the twists seem gratuitous to the core of the plot. Still, this is a mystery worth reading for its characterizations and its dialog. Recommended.
