Hunters in the Dark

Borders. Lawrence Osborne’s novel, Hunters in the Dark, takes readers across many different borders. Protagonist Robert Grieve is a disillusioned twenty-eight-year-old teacher from England, on the border between late adolescence and adulthood. His chosen profession is nothing like what he expected. He leaves Sussex on holiday for Thailand. Running out of money, he crosses the border in Cambodia where he thinks his funds will stretch further. He wins money at roulette, and what seemed like a path of decline and destruction seems to turn in his favor. Osborne keeps Grieve off balance, and the clouding of identity creates a new kind of border that needs to be crossed. Osborne’s descriptive language makes every scene come alive. If sunny days lead you to a dark novel, consider reading this one. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Hunters in the Dark from
