Quirk is back

by lindacat on Feb 12, 2008

The second in a series starring the alcoholic pathologist Quirk is a smoothly written and full of twists and turns. It delves deeply into the lives of the characters and makes them come to life on the page. Quirk has complex struggles with his conscience. the conflict between justice and vengeance and finally , his unending cravings to relieve life's disappointments at the botttom of a glass. A double whammy of an ending completes this superior novel.
