summary The Five Gates of Hell

review The Five Gates of Hell Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB An anomaly he saves people from drowning In Moon Beach Jed Morgan is in his element following a career that takes him from blackmail to commissioned murder A. In The Five Gates of Hell Thomson creates an entirely creepy city Moon Beach an American style metropolis on the eastern coast of a large unnamed country whose chief industry is funerals Moon Beach sometimes feels like Miami sometimes like New Orleans sometimes like Mexico City complete with an annual Day of the Dead but it is always mysterious less a portrait of a real American city than a vivid hallucination of one In it he tells of the twin interlinked comings of age of the shabby genteel Nathan Christie and the petty criminal Jed Morgan and the complicated plot as the lives of Nathan and Jed cross and recross is mainly an excuse to explore this landscape While the city feels American many of the characters still feel British and these disparate elements noir and gothic American and British come together in the character of Neville Creed who is part funeral magnate and part Cockney crime boss sort of a cross between Vincent Price and Bob Hoskins He is also a sexual predator operating under the name of Reid as Creed he employs and then betrays Jed and as Reid he drugs and rapes the hapless Nathan while wearing a suit made out of human bones The novel often reads like a collaboration between Raymond Chandler and a modern gothicist like Clive Barker or Neil GaimanThis last paragraph moving from a gothic metaphor to a cynical Chandleresue second person is a reminder that noir and gothic are near cousins and share some essential elements a palpable sense of impending doom the constant threat of violence and death and a seething often perverse sexuality All of which Thomson improbably wears as comfortably and stylishly as a trench coat and fedora or a suit of human bones It is a wild and uirky ride of the imagination both dark and unusual

review The Five Gates of Hell Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB Moon Beach is where you go to die a place where the dead are displayed under maruees and even the sea is dotted with gravestones Once a year the city observe. Rupert Thomson is one of those authors whose work I normally get massively frustrated by as he comes up with a uniue intriguing premise and never manages to uite tie the idea down into a coherent novel And generally speaking I do prefer my novels to be coherent However in this one he doesn t really come up with a premise at all I m not sure that even the location or characters are that well realised either This is a book dealing mainly with the bizarre fictional seaside location of Moon Beach a town where the gangland overlords run funeral parlours and will do anything to get to the topThe two main protagonists are Nathan a fairly middle class kid with an ill and needy father and Jed an ugly mean spirited and slightly creepy kid from the wrong side of the tracks It follows both of them in alternate chapters from being teenage kids with some of the same acuaintances to the inevitable final meeting Which makes it seem like there s an inexorable path to a climactic confrontation But there s not they aren t rivals they re not friends they re both just different characters following different routes in their own separate stories involving some of the same people Nathan is the goodish guy trying to make his way through life honestly Jed is the wrong un doing anything it will take to get into the inner circle of the bad guys And they both come up close and personal to the bad guy the depiction of corrupt malevolent power that is Neville Creed the kingpin of funerals yeah I still don t get that either It s a dreamlike fantasy None of the characters have a firm base in reality and don t have a strong vision of who or what they want to be They pretty much float along in a fugue state not understanding the world they re in and not really attempting too either But it s such a beautifully written vague dream of a story with it s wraithlike characters not a bit of meat on their bones in the vaguely described ghost town of death It s uite uniue hugely enthralling and lingers long in the memory without providing any answers and I m not sure there was even a uestion asked to be honest Lovely darkly ethereal and odd
