I was given an advanced copy of this book from Netgalley to review and provide my honest opinion. Firstly, not beeing a jazz fan or having any real knowledge of it did not take away from the experience of this book. It was beautifully written, and quite captivating. And ! actually loved how jazz was the thread that pulled so many aspects of the story and the book itself togethe. I loved how the book was allocated to 'Sets' which depicted the three stages of Marcos Adamidis life and death. His struggle as a boy living in an abusive home; his struggles with drugs, his relationships and his own demons. As Marcos struggles to make sense of his death and his life, he continues the search for his daughter whose kidnapping lead to this juxtoposition. Marcos rediscovers his relationship with his ex-wife as he is forced to face the past and forgive himself. A remarkable story that holds you in its grip from the very beginning. ( )

Definitely one of those books you have to read while fully awake and without all of life's distractions vying for your attention. The story is endearing and the plot moves along nicely but the writing is overly complex, needlessly so. The speech didn't feel natural and I doubt anyone actually speaks this way. However, if you pay attention you just might love the book. I was generous in giving this four stars instead of three simply because the story is actually really good. ( )
