David Lawrence is a successful poet and scriptwriter. He lives in Barnes, south-west London.From AudioFile:
Second in the Stella Mooney series, memorably begun last year with THE DEAD SIT ROUND IN A RING, this dark, chilling police procedural takes us into the mind of the pure psychopath as it details the horrors of a team of vicious serial killers. Julia Watson's narration serves to keep this novel unsanitized, presenting a psychodrama that, despite its atrocious cruelty to humans and animals, is chillingly devoid of rage. Like Stella's predilection for vodka over ice because it "feels like a cold kick," Watson's reading provides the listener with no less of an experience. This reading is the stuff of nightmares and is not for the faint of heart. K.A.T. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
