A fun book, set in my home city. It was quite cool to be able to read about places that I knew and frequented, and was much, much better than the only other book I've read that I can think of set in Melbourne (which would be The Brush Off).

The ending felt a little incomplete to me . . . sure, there was a sense of closure, of sorts, but there still left way too many questions to be answered. ( )
