But in Atkinson’s hands this black-and- white movie set-up soon spirals into a novel of paranoia and remorse, fear and violence. Stalwart throughout is the brilliantly drawn main character Juliet Armstrong, twisted, turned and ultimately changed by the experience. The book leaves the reader breathless, and with two nagging questions: who is the transcriber, and who the transcribed? Borrow the e-audiobook through BorrowBox now!
