A Pleasure and a Calling by Phil Hogan 4/5
Mr. Heming is a successful real estate agent running his own business, and for all intents and purposes leads an exemplary life.
Is Mr. Heming a psychopath, or a sociopath? I lean more toward sociopath, but what do I know? In a real sense he exhibits some qualities of both. Lets just call him "disturbed". Narrated by Mr. Hemming himself, the story is told in a calm and rather low key manner. The fact he is speaking of his stalking of families, or individuals and entering their homes and investigating their lives whilst they are away is made more so by said low key manner.
One wouldn't think there was anything amusing about this story, but the black humor is absolutely wonderful, I had to laugh at the most inappropriate times. I suspect if you are a fan of books like Gone Girl, you could easily find this book a gem.
Recommended for those with a bit of a warped sense of humor
