Rock'n'Roll Suicide

I finished Rock’n’Roll Suicide in the early hours of this morning clearly having no respect for everything I have to do today. West’s well written descriptions of his settings, situations and characters are beautiful and realistic. Jack Lockwood is very likeable and I quickly found myself caring about what happened to him – and a lot did.

I won’t give any spoilers but he’s had terrible problems in the past and I found myself having great empathy with his struggles through this book. He gets into trouble, a lot of trouble and one particularly terrifying scene will stay with me for a long time. This story is written with a great deal of knowledge and skill, it kept me guessing right to the end and even when I thought I’d worked it out there was another twist – brilliant! Fortunately for me I shall not have to wait too long before indulging in Jack Lockwood again as I’ve already bought West’s second book, Doppelganger.
