The Wasp Factory by Iain Banks
I had been making the rounds of the Sacrifice Poles the day we heard my brother had escaped.
Meet Frank Cauldhame. Just sixteen, and unconventional to say the least:
Two years after I killed Blyth I murdered my young brother Paul, for quite different and more fundamental reasons than I'd disposed of Blyth, and then a year after that I did for my young cousin Esmerelda, more or less on a whim.
That's my score to date. Three. I haven't killed anybody for years, and don't intend to ever again.
It was just a stage I was going through.
This was an interesting book about discovery, treasure and manipulation.
