What would it be like to have no feelings? No desire, no anger, no pleasure? Behold Martin Dash. A man who possesses stunning features that captivate all who encounter him but is also cursed with a medical condition that means he has no emotion to give in return. But one woman is convinced that there is something behind the apparently blank façade and sets out on a dark trail to uncover the haunted past that holds the key to the mystery; a journey that takes in politics, criminal finance, London’s neo-burlesque scene and, finally . . . murder. MARTIN DASH is the first book of a trilogy that relates the bizarre experiences of a young man whose life was always destined to be terrifying as well as exceptional.
If you are a fan of novels that really make you think and keep you on your toes, than this novel is definitely for you. I loved the fact that there were mind games throughout. It kept me flipping pages furiously.
Andy Bailey is a British writer residing in deepest Staffordshire (‘the Creative County’ . . .) His principal claim to fame as an author (so far) is the creation of ‘Martin Dash’ and his recurring theme is the absurdity and futility of human endeavour (unless you’re on double time) and his writing seeks to explore the strange motivations that drive the endlessly entertaining members of the species, homo sapiens.
