Britten & Brülightly is a wonderful read: quirky, dark and mysterious. The point of view of the illustrations swoops around the action and pokes into shady corners like a film noir camera and this style suits the murder / blackmail / revenge plot perfectly. Having said that I can't remember any film in that genre with anyone quite like Brülightly - I think it is worth getting hold of a copy of this book just to find out about this unusual character.
I must admit that I got a little lost in the storyline of Britten & Brülightly occasionally but it didn't matter, the strength of the imagery and characterization pull you through.
