Lots of bad language, violence (sometimes gratuitous), sex and unnerving scenarios - used in the right context and well-worded - for me brought the characters good, bad and downright crazy, very much to life. A completely unexpected twist at the end made this a very enjoyable read.
Entertaining read (until the end), realistic dialogue, easy to follow plot and comfortably read within a couple of days. Whilst the main part of the book was worth 4 stars the ending was a real disappointment - to me it felt as if the author had stopped to make a coffee but never returned! The ending was so abrupt I thought my Kindle 'page turn' button had stopped working, surely there should be another page at least - alas not!
A very comfy 2hr read, characters fairly well plotted (particularly liked Ned Kelly the Headmaster), storyline sometimes o.t.t, but all in all a good read and I would be happy to try this author again.
