Cold Hands

Cold Hands - John Niven Main woman with revenge agenda a bit OTT and lacking in authenticity - bit of an archetype fleshed out with unimaginative distinguishing features (am dram/booze) to make her seem real..lazy/nice idea but harder to make real.. but the main character's head trip pretty tidy...yup.well done.. could imagine writer struggling with parts a bit, and maybe getting a bit gnarled by having to do it... bit like Kennedy in SWM ;). Still, Niven pulling a big trailer of shit, coasting in a banger at low revs to save petrol always gonna better than most authors spanking through the countryside in a shiny new rental trying to show off.
