Book Notes: The Devil’s Work by Mark Edwards

Speaking about neoliberalism, Mark Edwards writes thrillers that are all based on a single premise: any contact with another human being is fraught with danger. Anybody can turn out to be a psychopath out to destroy you: a neighbor, a girlfriend, a coworker, a passerby. Talk to another human, treat anybody with kindness, and your life will be over.

The Devil’s Work is about co-workers from hell. The novel was published several years ago, but it would make for a perfect lockdown reading. All books by Edwards are perfect for a lockdown. Instead of wasting billions on Pfizer swill, governments should have ordered copies of Edwards’ books and sent them to everybody. Then people wouldn’t want to leave lockdowns ever again.

Great book, extremely enjoyable, extra spooky. In short, it’s perfect neoliberal fun.
