The Whispering Gallery

Iting for his girlfriend But romance is pushed aside when he witnesses a man falling to his d. There are aspects of this series I like such as the period atmosphere of pre war London and the complicated relationship between lead characters maverick newspaper reporter Johnny Steadman and his best friend since schooldays PC Matt Turner On the other hand the novels rely on sensationalist plot lines and revel in gruesome sexual violence that is depicted with a salaciousness I find disturbing verging on torture porn The writing can be a bit clumsy with a tendency to tell rather than show and over inclusion of detail gleaned from research that slows down the narrative Yet I read on mostly I admit in the hope Johnny and Matt will finally admit to themselves and each other their true feelings for each other Matt s wife Lizzie is portrayed sympathetically which I appreciate since too often female characters coming between two men are given very short shift by writers keen to explore mm relationships though there just isn t the same emotion in my response to Matt and Stella or Stella and Johnny that I feel with Matt and Johnny Johnny isn t always easy to like or admire especially impulses such as him wanting to push girlfriend Stella downstairs when she doesn t do what he wants There is a whiff too of the all gays are paedophiles trope though Sanderson does convincingly depict the risks and conseuences facing LGBT people in the time period forced underground by law and public attitudes living double lives based on deception open to blackmail and exploitation
