Perspective By Pete Howells
“This is an excellent novel: well-written, tense and fast-moving, with all the page-turning qualities you expect from a psychological thriller.”
Patrick Janson-Smith, Publisher, Harper Collins (Blue Door Imprint)
“The night of your mother’s funeral is a good night to cut your sister up.”
He has never known his father, and his mother finds life difficult. For reasons he can’t fathom, his big sister, Abigail, seems to hate him…David Kidman is a boy eager to please and desperate to be loved. He knows he doesn’t fit in but he doesn’t know why. He can’t read or write, so can’t adequately express his feelings. Everything he gets involved in seems to turn bad… Ironically, it is only when he reaches the end of a lengthy prison sentence that he is able to make any real sense of the disturbing world inside his head and discover truths long buried; truths that are revealed through his bourgeoning literacy and a whole series of his ‘imaginings’.
