James Jenkins reviewed on Oct. 12, 2015

This is very well thought out and written. This plausible universe developed fully in my mind's eye as I read the work, the story moves at a steady pace with out skipping important details or needless filler.

It was a long time since I read something that felt this fresh and different wihout feeling forced. An intriguing not-too-to-distant future holds no bars on life or death and the private investigator Tommy Wildclown works hard for his clients' fees and his own survival.

Well written with a very good flow and practically no typos, this holds a good commercial quality and I would be surprised if it will not be filmed.

How many times can you say that a story is so original that you have never read anything like it? The characters are so twisted and strange, yet the depth of characterization is so deep you find yourself completely convinced in their existence. The plot has so many layers you will probably resist the impulse to describe it to a friend because it would take so long to set it up and you wouldn't do it justice anyway. Just hand them your e-reader and let them enjoy it themselves. Dark, disturbing, political (the dead are a metaphor, I believe), hilarious, well-crafted and satisfying. Enough plot twists for several novels. It would make a great movie if anyone could pull it off---which I doubt. I thought I knew where the plot was going several times before I just gave up and enjoyed the ride. You will too. Get the book. You are welcome in advance. I bought Bent Steeple too and am looking forward to reading that one too.
