9780140158618: A Fatal Inversion (Film/Tv tie-in series)

Adam Verne-Smith collects around him a group of young people at Wyvis Hall, a big old country house in Suffolk. They hardly asks themselves or each other what they are doing, why they are there or how they are to live. They scavenge, steal, pawn.

Review:

'I defy anyone to guess the conclusion, but looking back, the clues are seen to be there, unobtrusively but cunningly planted, so that it seems one should have known all along. The curtain is drawn back to reveal rather than to surprise; a most satisfying end' Daily Telegraph 'An absolute winner, nimbly written with all the Dickensian virtues of vivid characterization, fine prose style and a cunningly devised plot that shifts and twists and keeps you on the edge of your chair' Daily Mail 'The story is brilliant, the ending a perfect bit of irony... Barbara Vine has the kind of near-Victorian narrative drive... that compels a reader to go on turning the pages' - Julian Symons, Sunday Times
