This book is a surprise. An excellent surprise. It’s not what I usually read (I say this a lot) having a fondness for mysteries and thrillers. This book had me at the jump and kept me enthralled. The main character is a sad case, is well formed and grows throughout. Let me take that back. He doesn’t grow in the right direction and that’s the main idea. He is stuck, stuck, stuck and can’t get out of his own way. Often, that age-old story line gets tiring, but the author keeps up the electricity by injecting weird sex (natch) which, among the protagonist’s other proclivities and bad choices produces a reader feeling of “Oh, no, not again you dummy. Get your sh*&^ together, man.”
Bad job, bad relationships, bad with money.
It all just works.
