By John Bingham
FROM THE creation by way of John Le Carré : "This novel contains the very best paintings of an exceptionally talented and maybe under-regarded British crime novelist . . . What gave John Bingham his magic used to be anything we glance for in each author, too usually in useless: an absolute command of the interior panorama of his characters, acutely saw via a humane yet splendidly corrosive eye". Michael Sibley and John Prosset shared a heritage that dated again to their first years at boarding university, and so the inside track of Prosset's homicide got here as a very good surprise to his previous pal - specifically simply because Sibley were staying purely the day sooner than at Prosset's kingdom apartment, the place the physique was once discovered. whilst the police arrive to query him in reference to the homicide, Sibley reveals himself mendacity approximately his contemporary stopover at, and therefore starts off to bare the genuine nature of a longstanding yet risky friendship, fraught with mutual deception and mistrust. As he tells his model of the reality to the police - and to the reader - Sibley makes the 1st of many fateful errors and unearths himself not just below suspicion, yet a prime suspect within the research. visible in the course of the eyes of Sibley himself, My identify Is Michael Sibley is a spell binding account of homicide, because the narrator purposefully makes an attempt to elude the police and turn out his innocence to the reader within the similar breath.
