As usual plotting, characterisation and style are classic - fast, elegant, and evocative - it's a nice tale about the ironies of Somali piracy and the web ot those who profit from it, with some hip people making the story go. It's good entertainment but almost too languorously Leonard. The edge of passion, excitement and the unexpected are just not there, so in the end you don't really care too much about what happens. But nonetheless it's better than a lot of thrillers out there for literary style, observational accuracy and political interest.
Despite the average reviews for the novel on Amazon, I bought this anyway to listen to as I do my household chores. This is easily the most confusing and hard to follow audio book I have ever heard. There isn't enough distinction between the character's voices which makes the endless dialogue of the book really really hard to keep up with. Add to that the flashbacks and you're in for a really confusing ride.
If I could get my money back, I would. I don't think I'm going to make it to the end.
