Book Review

END OF THE WORLD BLUES
by Jon Courtenay Grimwood

Genre: Science Fiction, General Science Fiction

RT Rating

Grimwood's short novel showcases his impressive writing skills. The well-drawn science fiction elements are a relatively minor part of the story (and might arguably be the fantasies of a traumatized young girl). This novel is recommended for anyone with a taste for both science fiction and mystery.

Kit Nouveau's life, once carefully reconstructed after a catastrophic decision he made as a young man, begins to fall apart one night when a stranger accosts him with murder in mind. An eccentric young woman saves Kit from death, but when Kit's wife dies soon afterward in a suspicious fire, Kit and his new ally get entangled in criminal affairs that reach from Japan to Britain -- and perhaps deep into time itself.
