it was amazing
Read in October, 2011


Some will find the premise disturbing. Nay, some will probably find it somewhat unpatriotic if not indelicate. What if 9/11 hit London, not Manhattan? What if you were screwing a pick-up while your hubby and son were blown to bits? And you saw it all on the telly while you were doing the nasty?

The protagonist's descent into horror is treated with compassion, sensitivity and that, oddly, uniquely snide and sarcastic Brit humor. I enjoyed the East End wordplay, and the emotional swordplay with the 'toff's" of the West End.

Read it. You will not regret it.
