Red Bride by Christopher Fowler
— Fowler’s usual greatness. I wasn’t keen on the supernatural element he warned me about. Had he been able to persuade his publisher to drop it, it would have been a novel about how a person can get trapped in the grip of a bad idea. That would have been scary enough!
