The Golden Mean: 04/06/07
At the end of February I received a RABCK in the form of The Gryphon which is the 4th book in the Griffin and Sabine series by Nick Bantock. As I hadn't yet read The Golden Mean, I treated myself to a copy.
The Golden Mean finds Griffin at home again in London and Sabine disappeared back to her island home. The feeling of unease left at the end of the previous continues on in the form of artists block for Griffin and an unsavory interloper named Victor Frolotti.
Frolotti's letters to Griffin begin to work their way into the narrative and are presented as well as colorful postcards and letters (albeit with sinister designs). Tales of his snooping into their lives also come in Sabine's letters. In fact, this book is mostly about Frolotti. Is his threat real or imagined?
