A must read for any musician or lover of music. No one better than this author describes and explains music better as a fundamental faculty of man, almost pure intelligence.
This book took me a while to get into, the language and story was a bit disjointed and it jumped around between scenes and between reality and each individual's thoughts quite a bit. However about a third of the way through I started to get how Fine writes and how each of the characters thinks and converses. This story is based in Sheffield and tells the result of a complex tale of the abuse and bullying that one young Nigerian boy suffers at the hands of his headmaster and the cover up involved. The story is set 33 years later after, when the boy has grown and takes it upon himself to conquer his demons before they conquer him, with the eloquent and unique use of a sandblaster. The story is told through the eyes of the investigating officers and slowly pieces together what happened, when and why as the investigation and thus the story progresses. The second part of the book focuses on the killers confession and interviews and it is during this part of the book that Fine shows the reader his best and it is here that the first part begins to make sense to both the reader and the investigating officers. You will need to persevere with this book but I assure you it is well worth it in the end.
