Morris Duckworth can’t get over Mimi.
But maybe he should have thought of that before he murdered her and married her sister.
Now Mimi’s back as a ghost, and she seems to be suggesting the way to redemption for Morris. And if anybody should get in his charitable way, then so much the worse for them.
A twisted whodunit…hilarious
Parks writes with a brutal, snapping wit
A triumph of the darkly-comic-thriller-and-something-more-besides genre
A sort of twisted whodunnit… The readability of the book comes from Parks’s wonderful and audacious juggling of farcical situations and the way in which Morris’s earnest attempts to build a more cultured and just world lead him further and further into slaughter. Hilarious.
