Review of ‘Necropolis’

Posted on Updated on

Newly appointed head of the Burials and Cemeteries department of his local council, Dyson Devereaux is intelligent and witty, but he’s also a sociopath who views political correctness and the feelings of others with disdain. When he suspects that a local cemetery worker is a wanted Serbian war criminal, he sees it as an opportunity to better himself. At the same time, he has to deal with a blood thirsty collector who is threatening his friend unless she pays a debt she owes.

Necropolis by Guy Portman is a black comedy featuring a classical unlikable protagonist that you’ll both love and hate. His barbed observations of society and its cultural icons will have you laughing and shaking your head—sometimes in agreement. Great book to read when you’ve been marooned by the east coast blizzard of 2016.

I give it five stars.
