About This Item

[London]: Little, Brown and Company, [1993]. First edition. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. (29092). Octavo, boards. "COMPLICITY is certainly [Banks'] most horrific book. In this novel a Scottish eremite exacts horrible revenge on people who have committed crimes but got away with them; it is not a comfortable book, and is made even less so by its superficial construction as a work of detection. It is more difficult here, however, to sympathize with the central character who is a muckraking journalist, drug addict, and sexual masochist--his masochism is played off effectively against the murderer's sadism." - John Grant in Pringle (ed), St. James Guide to Horror, Ghost & Gothic Writers, ps. 33.
