The past is an inescapable noose around a young man's neck, in this blackly comic, satirical novel from renowned crime writer Bill James. Britain, 1956. A young actress seemingly tries to commit suicide over a tangled love affair, but is taken to hospital and her life saved. The story is just the sort of thing that journalist Ian Charteris likes to cover. It should be a routine assignment. It would be, if it wasn't for the identity of the young woman. She may - just may - be Ian's sister.

Review:

"James spins an effective psychological tale of a man whose past shapes his future"
Publishers Weekly on Noose

"Superbly written, with James' unique clipped, darkly funny dialogue and brilliantly provocative prose, this is a story that will haunt and disturb readers long after they've read the final page."
Booklist Starred Review of Noose
