Unreliable. Alice Armitage, the unreliable narrator of Mark Billingham’s novel titled, Rabbit Hole, began to annoy me within the first few pages of this book. She’s a patient in an acute psychiatric ward and her running commentary has an erratic, frantic and troubled rhythm. While this is not Wonderland, there is a rabbit hole through which Alice serves as our guide. Patient readers who stick with Alice will be rewarded by a terrific narrative with murders to solve and the constant question about how reliable Alice is in what she is telling readers. Spending time with Alice in the psych ward was thrilling and entertaining, and every twist was executed by Billingham with great skill. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Rabbit Hole from amazon.com.
