Raymond's unnamed sergeant goes native in the wilds of '80s Britain to find a missing woman. Blunt, outraged, despairing...this criminal masterpiece is a wrecking ball for the senses. — Charles Bottomley

Description


This, the third novel in the Factory Series, sees Raymond's nameless detective leave London for a remote village called Thornhill, where he's meant to be looking into the disappearance of a local doctor's wife. How The Dead Live is a haunting, fantastical novel, with a hellish country house at its centre; a mystery with little interest in the mystery, a police procedural with almost no procedure. Instead, and as ever with Raymond, it's a brilliantly unsettling investigation into love and damnation. This is life seen from the very bottom of the bottle ? a fitting succesor to classic noir writers such as Jim Thompson and David Goodis.
