New York Journal of Books Reviews "The Spoiler" by Annalena McAfee

New York Journal of Books' reviewer Viv Young says, "A novel by a journalist about journalists promises to be revealing, shocking, and funny. Ms McAfee’s novel The Spoiler brings all of these elements into play, particularly the humor".

 
PRLog - Apr. 10, 2012 - New York Journal of Books reviewer Viv Young praises, "...reading this book during the week that the world learned of the terrible loss of journalist Marie Colvin brings another emotion to the fore: tragedy; not just the tragic loss of a talented, dedicated woman, but also the demise of news gatherers of Ms Colvin’s caliber—something The Spoiler illustrates in bucket loads".

Viv Young also says, "The plot of The Spoiler rattles along with slow-burning subplots that manage to keep the reader engaged. If the reveals are a little disappointing in their substance, Ms. McAfee makes up for this with her witty execution. When the story—and Sim’s—concludes, the reader is indeed left with a strong flavor of what really goes on in the business of newspaper journalism—and it isn’t a very nice taste".

"Set in the late 1990s, when the Internet was considered a mere fad, The Spoiler is a story of two London-based journalists who span the spectrum of age, ability and integrity"
