Fallen Angel (also known as Requiem for an Angel) is a haunting trilogy featuring the story of Angel, a female psychopath from adulthood, to adolescence through to childhood.
The first book starts at the end, when a young girl is abducted by a paedophile. The second and third books trace how Angel's life contributed to the person she eventually became.
It is a complex and beautifully written story. Most of all though, I would say it was a human story - where evil isn't just a line that is crossed. There are no definite good guys or bad guys - every human is fallible, no one is perfect.
The Roth trilogy consists of:
The Four Last Things
The Judgement of Strangers
The Office of the Dead
They can be read chronologically or in the order of publication. Each has a different narrator and a different perspective. However, reading in the order of publication I feel gives you a deeper understanding of each of the characters.
Would recommend to anyone who enjoys alternatives to the usual whodunnit type books within the crime genre.
