Summary
Living on the fringe of Oxford society as an ESL teacher, Tim befriends a suburban couple, falling in love with the discontented wife, and soon the two lovers are contemplating murder in the complacent atmosphere of manicured lawns and dinner parties
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Karen and I on the sofa, Karen and I in the back seat of the BMW, Karen and I at the river, up the alley, down the garden, round the corner, in the pub. Our movements are furtive, frantic and compulsive. Our pleasures are brief and incomplete. Our frustrations are enormous. Because if you look closely at the background of every scene, you'll see Dennis. Dennis and Karen lead a pleasant life in North Oxford until the day one of their dinner guests seduces Karen in the kitchen, setting in motion a chain of events which will destroy the thin veneer of their respectability and lead to ruthless murder. Dirty Tricks is a brilliant thriller set in contemporary Oxford: a gripping story of sex, ambition and violence with a wickedly humorous twist. If you enjoyed Dirty Tricks you may also like A Rich Full Death, another crime novel by Michael Dibdin.
