Clear rating

Description: For three decades William Trevor has been "one of the best writers at work in our language" (Boston Globe). Now, in a stunning progression, Trevor weds his literary art to hypnotic psychological suspense in a page-turner that will magnetize fans of Hitchcock and of Ruth Rendell at her most laconically chilling.
'Happy Birthday Darling
Love Seán x'
That is the insciption on the inside cover. But the pages have never been opened. The dust cover shows that this book has been moved from pillar to post, yet unread. How sad.

Dedication: For Jane

Opening: She keeps being sick.

St. Patrick's Day read, 2015.

'When a smile no longer matters he can be a melancholy man.' P.7

I thought, ah but a fifty pages in, that I should be listing the music as a playlist, but no, that would have been inappropriate given how I came to despise Mr Paul/Bill etc Hilditch.
