Longer is better

The action in this novel, and there is plenty, could fill a third of the space Perry takes to tell a layered, rich tale. You think you know most everything, but more gets revealed, and the characters are people you want to know more about. When one of the characters is crazy, the author reveals it by showing us her interior dialog in a convincing and scary way. Surprise revelations right up to the last page, the last sentence. Clearly written and a pleasure to read.Perry hasn't lost a step.

New-millenial noir

From the brutal baseball-bat attack on a female character in chapter one to the slightly muddled extra plot point at the end, this 13-disk novel is dark, dark, dark.

As an audiobook, one device the author uses comes across much more effectively than it would in print. The story involves a series of road trips and monotonous activity - in these times, various characters reflect on their history or the history of others, thus delaying the return to the main narrative and making the long drive, plane flight or walk back to the highway seem longer and more real.

A bit long, but extremely entertaining. The best drawn character is the female assassin Sylvie, and unfortunately one of the weakest is Wendy Harper, the female protagonist. A very interesting character is introduced in the third act and the plot intersections gradually weave into a fairly solid thread. Michael Kramer's narration is a bit florid but given the material, it works most of the time.

Enjoyable, perhaps even memorable. A good long walk on the dark side. Enjoy.
