The late British bluesman and crime writer claimed his middle initial stood for bastard. It might not take one to know one, but Spencer clearly had a keen feel for the UK's yobs, slobs, and nut jobs. Completed weeks before he died last spring, this dialogue-driven tale of woe deliciously details how three groups of dissolute souls bang into each other with deadly force. First we meet two petty thieves, one with an ailing mum and a prosthetic hand, the other with a troubled girlfriend and a violent temper. Then there's the sexually repressed young journalist making up for lost time with her assistant and a married real-estate broker (all while her criminal brother circles in for a kill). And don't forget the love-hungry woman who leaves her nutter husband for a cross-dressing German surveillance expert (who keeps seeing his voyeuristic partner on the side). All their intersecting dreams and schemes add up to only one thing, as the title suggests. But watching it all unwind is as sickly compelling as a 20-car pileup.""--Booklist
