George Harvey Bone has an obsession with the pretty small-time actress Netta. He also drinks heavily and suffers from dark moods, where he enters a trance-like state and can't remember what has happened. Throw Netta's often-cruel treatment of him into the mix, and drama beckons.

Patrick Hamilton's best-known novel, which is thought to have autobiographical aspects, is an in turn shocking and touching tale of unrequited love and just desserts. Lonely George is driven to the brink by a combination of drink, psychological disorder, and obsession, although a listener cannot help but feel sympathy for him. Download and start listening now!

    " A very powerful novel. The griminess of London and the sordid wasteful life led by George and the other characters are palpable. Hamilton creates a psychopathic hero who draws such sympathy from the reader - I was desperate for him to kill the awful Netta. And I found the small important moments of kindness and sympathy incredibly upsetting - glimpses of another world which you know George will never live in. Not a pleasant read but very fulfilling and I would definitely recommend you read this boo "

    " If you become giddy with excitement waiting for the next issue of The New Yorker to be published so you can dive into the prose, you'll like this book. To be sure, Hamilton knew what the hell he was doing as a writer. There aren't a lot of laughs here; all the characters are tragic and, in some cases, so beyond pathetic it was hard for me to care. In the end, however, the trudge through was worth it. "

    " One of my all time favourites this, a book you find yourself shouting at in public. It's characters truth is perfect. A perfect and relatable decent into madness. Wonderful "
