This is a fast paced well written crime story that at times I felt was quiet gruesome and probably not the best choice of read late at night or on the daily commute into work lol, all that said I would say this is a very good book that is well worth reading if this is your sort of thing. I would also say if you do read this then stick at it as it does get better and better each chapter so don’t be put off if your not hooked right away.
