Filled with tragedy, dark and gritty events, D B Martin knows how to write a great book that deals with the side of life that most of us hope and pray we never have to confront ourselves.
As the second book in the series it is a great follow up to Patchwork Man. Though I am glad I read the books in order as the importance of Lawrence’s development from a boy to a man and seeing that reflecting in a client seems to have shaped and affected how he reacts to the latest events in his tragic life.
Saying that, this book is fairly slow to start as it deals with depression and anxiety that Lawrence feels over the loss of his wife, but as Martin hits her stride in writing, the plot and characters soon move the narrative along.
As a first person narrative, this book has a narrow field through which you are allowed to experience the story and it helps a great deal when it comes to understanding why things seem to unravel around Lawrence when you see the world through his eyes.
As in Patchwork Man, the characters are very well rounded and avoid the trap of merely being two dimensional plot devices. There are moments when the more practical minded would act differently in similar circumstances to Lawrence, but equally that’s what makes this book so good – Lawrence isn’t the every man character that you are used to seeing that is devoid enough of his own personality that the reader can superimpose their own personality on top of him.
There are some great elements of the psychological thriller genre that have been incorporated into Patchwork People and it is wonderful to read something where dialogue between characters doesn’t feel stilted and staged in order to simply move along part of the plot.
