Investigating Mr Wakefield (pb)
Rob Gittins Other books by Rob Gittins
What's a wife, husband or partner like when you're not watching?
Investigating Mr Wakefield explores the dangers waiting to ensnare those who try to find out.
In tight, breathtaking writing – almost claustrophobic at times – Investigating Mr Wakefield brilliantly explores how surveillance can only too quickly become its own addiction, as Jack becomes overwhelmed by an imagination gone bad.
Jack Connolly was a high flying war photographer. His career went into freefall when he manipulated the image of a dead soldier to make it appear that the soldier died a hero's death. At the time, Jack saw it as an act of simple humanity, but the innocent deception cost him his job and the trust of his peers. It taught Jack the all-important lesson; only one thing matters and that's the truth. So when Jack begins to suspect his partner might be leading a double life, he plunges into a search for the truth behind her actions. Jack believes he's shining a light on all that might be hidden. In fact he's journeying into the very heart of darkness.

"A superb, unsettling book, both culturally significant and beautifully written." - Jeni Williams
"It's rare that one is presented with such a powerful opportunity to single-mindedly descend into the uncharted depths of one fanatical idea but, in this latest novel, the ultra-talented Rob Gittins has delivered such an invitation on a shimmering silver platter – and you'd be a fool not to accept.
This all the hallmarks in place to be a cult classic, and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Exploring sensitive issues of love, loss and the most extreme jealousy – there are elements of all of us in Jack Connolly's emotional explosion and we'd do well to recognise them before we suffer a fate worse than Mr Wakefield!
