As a boy, William Bellman commits one small, cruel act: killing a bird with his slingshot. Little does he know the unforeseen and terrible consequences of the deed, which is soon forgotten amidst the riot of boyhood games. By the time he is grown, with a wife and children of his own, William seems to be a man blessed by fortune - until tragedy strikes and the stranger in black comes. Then he starts to wonder if all his happiness is about to be eclipsed. Desperate to save the one precious thing he has left, William enters into a rather strange bargain, with an even stranger partner, to found a decidedly macabre business. And Bellman & Black is born.
not great, not horrible
A bit of a disappointment if you are expecting something similar to Setterfield's The Thirteenth Tale. This is a very slow, ponderous book. I purchased this audiobook while it was on sale for 5.95, so don't feel overly disppointed. It is just a tad boring.
