A Lonely Man

The author skillfully the takes the reader through the paranoia of a Russian writer(Patrick) who has exposed a corrupt Russian oligarch (are there any other kind?) and the protagonist, Robert, who is writing a novel about Patrick. The tension builds to an explosive ending yet there is only a surface feel to the characters. Ultimately the abrupt ending left me cold and unsatisfied because I wasn’t able to invest any emotion towards Patrick or Robert.
