One of my recently purchased box of goodies from Fahrenheit Press.
Down Among The Dead is a short novella which delivers a solid punch in just 40 pages. It's brutally noir and the characterisation of Michael, the protagonist, is tightly and expertly drawn. The story revolves around the ever-tantalizing theme of our past coming back to haunt us, and that our present and future are always linked somehow to our history.
Finbow's prose is spartan, yet poignant.
I read the story in one sitting, which made it all the more enjoyable.
I highly recommend this for lovers of noir, and I'll certainly be looking out for more of Finbow's work.
