Description - Slow Motion Ghosts by Jeff Noon
A dark and labyrinthine thriller from a bold new voice in crime fiction
'Noon's storytelling is assured and compelling ... it's a belter' Guardian
'Constantly surprising' Spectator
A viciously occult murder.
A curious clue left on the body.
The soundtrack to the murder still playing...
It is 1981 and Detective Inspector Henry Hobbes is still reeling in the aftermath of the fire and fury of the Brixton riots. The battle lines of society - and the police force - are being redrawn on a daily basis.
With the certainties of his life already sorely tested, a brutal murder will shake his beliefs to their very core once more. The manner of the death and its staged circumstances pose many questions to which there are no obvious answers.
To track the murderer, Hobbes must cross boundaries into a subculture hidden beneath the everyday world he thought he knew. His investigation takes him into a twisted reality, which is both seductive and devastating, and asks him the one question he has been dreading- How far will he go in pursuit of the truth?
Jeff Noon is the author of six acclaimed novels, Vurt, Pollen, Automated Alice, Nymphomation, Needle in the Groove and Falling Out of Cars, as well as two collections of short fictions, and is also the crime fiction reviewer for The Spectator. He lives in Brighton.
