Early in Dan Rhodes' fourth novel, a drunk meanders down a darkening street, singing about a soldier and his sweetheart. It begins with the soldier asking whether Frieda will love him if he only had one eye, to which Frieda says yes; and ends with him asking if she'll still love him if there's nothing left of him to love, to which she also assents. In the twisted world of Dan Rhodes, it is described as "a simple song of true love" – a sentiment that perfectly encapsulates his macabre and oddly touching attitude towards love, death and obsession.
