Bourne's novels are packed with fully drawn characters, each with a distinctive voice. On rereading, I let myself savor Bourne's genius for language: "Death by a surfeit of steel through his belly," an agent explains, an apparently uninteresting character is "wrapped in ordinary," an industrious woman is "busy as a cat with two tails," a woman well loved experiences happiness "in the small of her stomach, like coals in a hand warmer." There are treats on every page.
