A Good Read

Complicity by Ian Banks

Involvement, connection, liability. Are we guilty by association?

Cameron Colley is a substance abusing fully paid-up gonzo journalist hack on an Edinburgh newspaper. His source is tenuous but he senses a scoop and checks out a series of bizarre deaths from a few years ago. Meanwhile bizarre deaths are happening right now and eventually Cameron is questioned by the police. Does he know more than he cares to admit…….

This is an excellent study of the morality of greed, corruption and violence, venturing into the murky depths of human purpose. Stylishly written, compelling, sinister, funny, a very good thriller, thoroughly enjoyed it.
