      The book starts with a detailed description of a man on a balcony, and then cuts to the police investigating a series of muggings, quickly followed by the rape and murder of a girl child; in the middle of which, a woman phones in a complaint about the man on the balcony just looking creepy and suspicious/5(32). THE MAN ON THE BALCONY reminds the reader that it is possible to bring a multi-layered, character driven, soundly plotted book in a short package. There's also a willingness to use a different style of resolution - in THE MAN ON THE BALCONY the police get lucky and a coincidental comment leads them in the right direction.

      Label: Man on a Balcony, completed the same year that Albert Gleizes co-authored an important book on Cubism with his colleague Jean Metzinger, is an open declaration of the principles of Cubist composition demonstrates the Cubist style of broken lines and fractured planes as applied to the traditional format of the full-length portrait. You cannot hear the name Martin Luther King, Jr., and not think of death. You might hear the words 'I have a dream,' but they will doubtlessly only serve to underscore an image of a simple motel balcony, a large man made small, a pool of blood. For as famous as he may have been in life, it is - and was - death that ultimately defined him.
