How the Dead Live : Factory 3, Paperback

How the Dead Live : Factory 3 Paperback



This, the third novel in the Factory Series, sees Raymond's nameless detective leave London for a remote village called Thornhill, where he's meant to be looking into the disappearance of a local doctor's wife.

How The Dead Live is a haunting, fantastical novel, with a hellish country house at its centre; a mystery with little interest in the mystery, a police procedural with almost no procedure.

Instead, and as ever with Raymond, it's a brilliantly unsettling investigation into love and damnation.

This is life seen from the very bottom of the bottle - a fitting succesor to classic noir writers such as Jim Thompson and David Goodis.
