Very good mystery / suspense novel set in modern day London. Evans is a great writer and I was completely bemused by and impressed with her main character, Stuart Park, a morgue photographer and an atypical, deviant sleuth who seems to perpetrate more crimes than he solves. He was both sympathetic and horrific. His judgement, or lack thereof, reminded me a little bit of a high-functioning Karl Childers (Slingbade). I was delighted with the story until the last two or three pages; I found the ending quite disappointing.
