If not to evade responsibility?

On Sundays we do beginnings, taking a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker. (Ah, moniker, love that word.) Today – Nerve Damage (2007).

[“From the reliably marvelous Peter Abrahams comes Nerve Damage, another top-drawer psychological thriller.”
– Jennifer Reese, Entertainment Weekly]
