Book Description

COMPLICITY n. 1. the fact of being an accomplice, esp. in a criminal act

Local journalist Cameron Colley writes articles that are idealistic, from the viewpoint of the underdog. A twisted serial killer seems to have the same MO -- he commits brutal murders on behalf of the underdog. As the two stories begin to merge, Cameron finds himself inextricably and inexplicably implicated by the killer.

When the arms dealer whom Cameron plans to expose is found literally "disarmed" before Cameron can even put pen to paper and the brewery chief, loathed by Cameron, who sold out at the expense of his workers finds himself permanently unemployable, the police become convinced of Cameron's guilt, as do half his friends and colleagues, forcing Cameron to employ all his investigative skills to find the real killer and his motive.

    Imprevedibile

    Quando un autore riesce a spiazzarti, guadagna già molti punti. Quando poi riesce a mescolare i classici ingredienti del romanzo noir con scelte esistenziali...allora non puoi che applaudire e rimanere, piacevolmente, a chiederti come ti saresti comportato tu nei panni dei due protagonisti

    As usual with many of his novels (be them SF or "mainstream") you have to read almost till the end to understand the title, and to which (or whose) complicity is he referring to.
    The story in itself is fairly simple, but the characters are wonderfully depicted. And even raunchy at times.

    Una lieta sorpresa

    Ho comprato questo libro a scatola chiusa, dando per scontato, conoscendo l'autore, di trovarmi davanti ad un libro di SF. Niente di tutto questo, Complicità è un ottimo thriller, che consiglio vivamente.
    Bravo Banks
