Page 45 Review by Mark

"How many stories do you have to tell?
"Stories? What do you mean?"
"How many amusing or exciting anecdotes have you lived that you'd be able to relate during an evening with friends?"

Over the next few pages, Alex gets an anecdote or two to tell at dinner parties and the like. His best friend is murdered and the blame is pinned on him.

On the run from the police, he strays into Geraldine's pet shop and, after searching his eyes to see if he did it or not, she takes him in. There is, as there usually is, a web of intrigue behind the murder and Alex does his best to stay on top of it. He and Geraldine grow close, he gets on with her daughter but he's still a wanted man.

Jason's simple storytelling and dog / bird-faced characters are used well here.

A stunning thriller and an ending that just floored me.
