Dark. A well written semi-sleuth novel solved by an old school punk photographer who's half criminal herself, pilfering things, self-medicating, and setting off other acts of chaos throughout. Actually, I wouldn't have minded if the novel hadn't tried to go so "thriller", I was invested enough in the narrator and her bleak vision, trying to deal with her present, having "annihilated" through a past but somehow surviving on. There was something slightly Thomas Harris once they got out to the second island, but the author herself joked at this in a local newspaper headline.

Good stuff and I'll check out more by Hand.
