NOTHING BAD ABOUT IT
HIS new book might be called Bad to Worse, but author Robert Edeson is only getting better.
After his first novel The Weaver Fish won him the T.A.G Hungerford award and was also published in both the United Kingdom and United States, it might be hard to fathom how Edeson could top his successful first publication, but he comes pretty close with his latest offering.
Set in the Arizona desert, a survivor pulls himself from the wreck of a plane that crashed into the ground in a classified zone.
It is not long before he is being forced to take back his account that the plane hit an illicit drone, all the while reigniting a century-old family feud.
Edeson said there were some similarities and difference between Bad to Worse and The Weaver Fish.
“I can say that the narrative in Bad to Worse is more linear and in this respect it is probably an easier read,” he said.
“From a plot point of view, I would describe it as a vendetta novel, whereas The Weaver Fish is a quest novel.
“Of course, the arch-criminals differ between the two novels, in consequence of being disposed of by protagonist Richard Worse.
“Although Bad to Worse can be seen as a sequel in many senses, it is certainly a standalone work.”
