Nondescript Rambunctious

(2011)
(The first book in the Lizzy Trilogy series)
A novel by

 
 
Oliver is an elusive new addition to the dysfunctional small town of Dalbegie, Scotland. Unaware of his dangerous side, divorcee Lauren is charmed by Oliver's brief yet charismatic appearances. Lauren has become the latest victim of Oliver's exclusive, secret club, nondescriptrambunctious.com. After Lauren's disappearance, her only daughter Lizzy is left distraught and vulnerable. Under the sloppy care of her extended family, she rapidly spirals into rebellion. Oliver's matter-of-fact justification for what he does leads the reader to contemplate the idea that the most "successful": killers are often the most unlikely suspects. They might not appear evil at first glance: take for example Ted Bundy, or "Canada's bright, shining lie," former Colonel and rapist/murderer Russell Williams. In a society that has become increasingly desensitized, heinous acts of violence are just one more news item to be consumed. Could we go so far as to feel sympathy for a serial killer? In Nondescript Rambunctious, we find cruelty at its most devestating - and empathy where we least expected.
