The Shouting Man is more of a slow-burning smouldering thriller read and I found the characters well developed and the scene for the story was well set. However, as well written as it was for a debut novel it lacked a steady flow for me and, in my opinion, a good professional edit to add momentum to the book at certain points would have made this a much more compelling read.
