And as always, here is a positive and negative review, so you have the facts:
★★★★★ Great stuff!
Two storylines, at first parallel and then growing closer together. Great characters, dialogue, descriptions, and wonderful plotting and action. Worth every penny I paid, and couldn’t put it down even to sleep! More exciting than 99% of action movies. anonymous BN.com
B grade novel and if he wasn’t Elmore Leonards son probably wouldn’t have been published.
The characters are ordinary apart from Joey Palermo & the story is “run of the mill”
Perhaps he should read more of his father’s & Estelman’s books about Detroit to get some ideas!!
Difficult to categorize the book as it is not a thriller by any means. Shane amazon.com
