Slow burning lies opens with a man entering a coffee shop at closing time and wanting to tell the waitress Patrick's story about his very bad dreams.
This is a very intriguing book. Are Patrick's dreams real? Are the dreams in the dreams real? Is Patrick going mad? Or are there other things afoot? There are so many questions as you go along, you are wondering what is real and what is not.
I really enjoyed this book. It was very well written and the tension was ramped up, with surprises thrown in now and again to make you re-evaluate what you already thought.
Having read a few of Ray Kingfisher's books now, he's definitely an author that I'll keep an eye out for.
