Read full description of the books:
I can't imagine two more disparate books than Palliser's first and second novels. I haven't read his first Quincux but have read enough about it to be suprised that he also wrote this one - The Sensationist.
For most of the way through the book I was frustrated by the deliberate lack of concrete details about the setting and the main characters. For me landscape is very important and I couldn't help wondering was David working in Manchester, Glasgow or Edinburgh? And what was his job anyway?
I know these weren't the concerns of the novelist but I did feel the lack...until the denouement when it all fell away and only what was revealed mattered. A strange but rewarding novel.
