The Cutting Room

An auctioneer by profession, Rilke is an acknowledged expert in antiques but also considers himself something of an expert in many other fields.

When he comes upon a hidden collection of violent, and highly disturbing, erotic photographs, Rilke feels compelled to unearth more about the deceased owner who coveted them. What follows is a compulsive journey of discovery, decadence and deviousness.

Praise for Louise Welsh
andThe Cutting Room

The Cutting Room is a hugely commendable debut, assured and memorable. Crime fiction may have its prize-winner at last.

This elegiac, elegant and atmospheric book is an original and compelling first novel. Rarely can such gothic material have been treated with such subtlety.
