Sorry by Zoran Drvenkar

Sorry

Zoran Drvenkar

Deeper and darker than Scandinavian crime, with bewildering changes of narrator and time frame, plus the most terrifying look at friendship since Donna Tartt's 'The Secret History': this book is just simply a must for all lovers of noir thrillers.

Extract

All those months, days, hours, minutes. Every second is a weight round your neck. Resistance is difficult. How many times have you wanted to fall on your knees? Always resisting, always bracing yourself. It's understandable that you're tired. Anyone else would be tired too, many would have given up, but you're stubborn and well on the way of freeing yourself from your guilt .... Do you want to enter into a discussion about the elements of fate?

No.
