Exquisite had such a buzz about it before I got to read the book, I met the author at Newcastle Noir and heard her read the opening of the book, which was dark and intense and had a dirty stalker feel to it, but written in such a beautiful way.
Since then, I have had the book on my shelf and it has been calling me to read it, which I did in as few a sittings as possible.
It is such a beautifully written novel, with the idea of a book within a book, and the retelling of the events through the point of view of Bo and Alice, this was done seamlessly and you knew whose narrative it was you were reading.
This is a book steeped in believability, and suspense with extremely fluent plotlines. which are dark, seedy and messed up.
