    It should be an open-and-shut case. Samuel Szajkowski, a recently hired history teacher, walked into a school assembly with a gun and murdered three students and a colleague before turning the weapon on himself. It was a tragedy that could not have been predicted. Szajkowski, it seems clear, was a psychopath beyond help. Yet as Detective Inspector Lucia May begins to piece together the testimonies of the various witnesses, an uglier and more complex picture emerges.

    What would have made A Thousand Cuts better?

    Give us one believable character, or one situation that isn't a writer's cliche.


    What could Simon Lelic have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    See above


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The performance was good.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Thousand Cuts?

    The detective character needs to be replaced with an idividual (of either gender) that the reader could accept as real.
