Rob Spence reviews Any Human Face on Topsyturvydom, his highly recommended blog. It’s a great thrill when someone whose opinion you respect gets it, and Rob certainly gets it here. This is a taste of the review:
This novel is, in concept, an excellent, disturbing, stylish thriller, but one with aspirations beyond the working out of a criminal act. It uses most of the thriller conventions, but goes well beyond them, to offer a story which deals with universal themes, particularly of man’s inhumanity to man, and the dark heart of loneliness at the centre of many lives.
