Book Description Flamingo, Glasgow. Softcover. Book Condition: Wie neu. Ohne Schutzumschlag. Thornley, Richard - The Dark Clarinet, 218 S., Taschenbuch, (B-Format), FONTANA, vom Verlag bezogen, Seiten durch Lagerung leicht vergilbt, ungelesen. N. is spoiled and desirable. There is a sharp coquetry about her. Her husbnd is in prison, convicted of murdering her lover; and her violent brother-in-law shows her far more than a fraternal regard. She is above all a woman who gets what she wants. A young lawyer is drawn blindly and gladly into N.'s orbit visiting the restaurant she runs in Portsmouth in order to research a possible appeal against her husband's sentence. Their tense sexual games playing leads to a bewildering obsessive affair which has to accomadate N.s many mysteries and infidelities. He is drawn even deeper into a disturbing power play, made all the more threatening for being only vaguely undestood. The lawyer begins to suspect that N.S motives are darker and more complex than at first they appeared. . "The story works well as a whodunnit, with a nice twist at the end, but is best of all as a study of febrile eroticism. The author sets great store by the rustle of silk, the shape of a neck, the light touch of a woman’s fingertips, and succeeds in communicating his enthusiasm to others.2 (Financial Times).
