This story has a gritty realism that draws the reader straight into the action from the outset. The imagery is remarkable: 'discarded remains of a million torn-up cards littered the booths. The saddest confetti in the world'. There are clever references to birth throughout which skillfully misdirect our fears. It is not until the end that the plight of the protagonist is realised. Gripping read.
