PainkillerPainkiller by N.J. Fountain

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Painkiller is the story of Monica, an ex theatrical agent, disabled by chronic pain after a fall down car park stairs, five years earlier. The painkillers that she takes have created great big holes in her memory, so when she finds a suicide letter she can’t remember writing, she doesn’t know for sure that she didn’t write it but something doesn’t quite add up.

Painkiller doesn’t have a particularly fantastic start, parts of it read more like a docudrama than a novel and the characters aren’t that particularly likeable but the story really improves towards the end and although some of the twists (it’s that sort of book) were obvious, not all were.
