Product Description

Review

“A serial killer is on the loose, but not the usual breed. Urban myth whispers of a ‘Mr. Candid,’ who, for the past 17 years, has been quietly and efficiently removing the parts of society that the law can’t reach. In prose that is both graceful and hard-hitting, Jules Hardy plays across the fuzzy lines that separate good from bad deeds and morality from law.” —The Times
--This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

First Sentence
Flanagan would be at a football game, wolfing down a hot dog, or perhaps playing with his kids in the yard, when one or other memory (of so many) from those months would swim lazily into his mind. Read the first page

Format: Mass Market Paperback
hardy's book "altered land" was one of the books that has changed my life.
the humanity in this book is so real, so rough as life.
i live in israel and dealing with consequenses of bombings everyday. and as a person who lives in such a reality i could only read this book and agree to every written word.
the characters' life are described in a way you'll feel as you are part of them too.
i could go on for ages, but tp sum up, this one of the only books that will make you more human after you've read it.
just read it!

Format: Paperback
This is the 2nd book I have read by Jules Hardy. Her debut novel Altered Land was the best book I read in 2002 and Mister Candid is my favourite novel for 2003. I have lent this to both my male and female friends and everyone thinks it is terrific.
Do yourself a favour a buy a copy.
