The Book of Evidence by John Banville

The Book of Evidence is written as a speech from the dock by Freddie who tells the story of how he came to murder a servant girl, who caught him in the act of stealing a small Dutch master. Banville writes in a flawlessly flowing prose and plays with notions of evil to create a murder story that is moving, gripping and totally absorbing.
John Banville was born in Wexford.
