This book started off promising, funny edgy but rapidly deteriorated and by page 90 I was struggling to get through it. Overall it was a painful ordeal to get through it. ( )

Quirky, comical, with a heavy dose of satire lending gravity to serious issues. Bateman's characters are just over-the-top enough to be normal. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0006498035, Paperback)

New novel from the bestselling author of Divorcing Jack and Empire State. Nothing much ever happens in Niagara Falls. It is a sleepy town full of honeymooners and tourists, and that's how Inspector Frank Corrigan likes it. He saw enough trouble as a cop in Northern Ireland. Now he's happy dealing with parking offences and the odd drunk, although since his wife has left him and taken their daughter, 'happy' may not quite be the word. But then a reincarnated Native American princess by the name of Lelewala canoes over the Falls and survives. Or so she says. And Frank falls in love. And finds himself confronting the greatest terrorist of the age at an international gathering of drug dealers. And then the music starts...Funny, moving, crazy, dark and thought-provoking, this is Bateman at his brilliant best.
