Product description

Review

There ought to be a moratorium on certain titles: Something Wild has been used for two films and at least three books, but one forgives Davies the lack of imagination in the title, such is the sheer storytelling acumen she displays in this well-turned thriller. The protagonist Sarah may have a fragile beauty, but has been tough enough to fight her way to the upper echelons of the financial trade. She has also worked under cover for MI6, and has been emotionally scarred by the death of her parents, the murder of her best friend and the assassination of her lover. Her eventful life is given even more edge when she tries to hide from her son the identity of his rock star father whom she left. But when her career involves the rock world again, her past (needless to say) comes back to haunt her. Despite the novelettish aspects of the plot (many an author has come unstuck with plots involving rock stars), Davies' skills never desert her, and the momentum this one accrues is considerable. Sarah is a well-rounded character, and the reader is forced to care about her problems, however alien they may appear to most of us. Like the earlier Nest of Vipers, this is further evidence that Davies is a name to watch.
