I started this book after reading an excerpt in Boston Noir 2 and grabbed it from our local library.
I enjoyed the story, the characters were well-ish drawn in a familiar hard-boiled kind of style so that you felt you knew these characters from a Donald Westlake, an Elmore Leonard, an Adrian McKinty novel.

Not bad at all. ( )
