“Clearly the star of this, Greenan’s seventh novel, is Nigel Vaughan. Nigel, who possesses great strength and dexterity, is a man of cunning, wit, and erudition. He has read broadly among the ancient and more modern classics. […] More surprisingly, Nigel can listen to the tune of a starling and identify its song as, of all things, “Caro nome” from Rigoletto. For Nigel Vaughan, who enjoys balloons and motorcycles as well as art, is totally, obviously, relentlessly, and often violently, insane. […] It can be questioned whether justice in the long run prevails or merely endures.”
