Cold Wind – Nicola Griffith ****

Leave a comment

When I’m promised ‘urban fantasy,’ now THIS is what I want to be served!!

An unnamed observer enters a women’s bar on a holiday evening. Conviviality is all around her, but she is watching and waiting… for who? or what? Gradually, small clues are dropped that this isn’t going to be your usual bar pick-up or one-night-stand.

Rather, it’s a tale of predators and prey…

Beautiful, vivid writing, as can always be expected from Nicola Griffith.
