Introducing unrepentant bourgeois serial killer Morris the Duckworth and his adventures in Veronese high society.
     Bored and broke, Morris Duckworth, an English teacher in Verona, stumbles on a plan for financial salvation -- to marry Massimina, a seventeen-year-old student. And if his intentions are frustrated by a suspicious, conservative family, is it any fault of his that the lovely girl chooses to elope? Obsessed by self-advancement and excitement, Morris' dreams of blackmail, theft and murder plunge him deep into a chilling nightmare of deception and violence.

He has won the Somerset Maugham, Betty Trask and Llewellyn Rhys awards, and bee shortlisted for the Booker Prize.

Review:

"A triumph" Daily Telegraph "Sharp and witty, expertly paced, frequently horrific and often very funny" Times Literary Supplement "An unusually classy thriller, true to life and not to be missed" Independent "Entertaining black humour" Independent on Sunday "Tim Parks presents the real, virginal, boastful, cracked Morris lurking behind his own justifications as matters turn lethal and ugly. Clever, blandly humorous and utterly immoral" Sunday Times
