Hawthorn and his partner, Child, are called to the scene of a mysterious shooting in North London. The only witness is unreliable, the clues are scarce, and the victim, a young man who lives nearby, swears he was shot by a ghost car. While Hawthorn battles with fatigue and strange dreams, the crime and the narrative slip from his grasp and the stories of other Londoners take over: a young pickpocket on the run from his boss; an editor in possession of a disturbing manuscript; a teenage girl who spends her days at the Tate Modern; and a madman who has been infected by former Prime Minister, Tony Blair. Haunting these disparate lives is the shadowy figure of Mishazzo, an elusive crime magnate who may be running the city, or may not exist at all.

“Strange and Disjointed”

I think that maybe I just missed the plot perhaps going by the other reviews but I just plainly did not understand this book. It seemed like lots of different stories about different things just clumped together. I... More

“Loose plot and poorly developed characters”

I'm a big fan of crime novels, so I was excited to read this one. However, the entire form of the book is peculiar. I found it very disjointed - each chapter has a different story with some cross-linking... More

“Hawthorn and Child”

This is not a detective novel. In fact, I'm not even sure it is a novel at all. Only when I read it as a series of loosely-connected stories did it start to make sense. Whatever it is though, it's amazing. I... More
