The Fall Guy by James Lasdun

My Rating: 3.8

Charlie, a wealthy banker with an uneasy conscience, invites his troubled cousin Matthew to visit him and his wife in their idyllic mountaintop house. As the days grow hotter, the friendship between the three begins to reveal its fault lines, and with the arrival of a fourth character, the household finds itself suddenly in the grip of uncontrollable passions

Very twisted and although I enjoyed it, none of the characters were likable and the ending felt anti-climatic. Not a must read.
