Andrew Lewis Conn shows great skill in this novel. The characters were fabulous and well-drawn. They're not necessarily likable, and some of their actions may lead more conscientious readers to toss the book into the trash, but they propel the story nicely. The story itself builds wonderful momentum and is paced perfectly until the final chapters—I found the end a bit rushed, but that is a common problem in novels, especially when the reader is engaged in the story and doesn't want it to end.

OK book but not the kind of book that makes a lasting impression; a week from finishing this book, I'd be hard pressed to recall much of it or that I read it at all. There also seem to be quite a few sections that are written purely for 'shock value' and do nothing for character development or to advance the story line. It feels unnecessary.
