I'm a huge fan of His Beardiness' and didn't know what to expect from this foray into sci-fi of his. Hooked me from the first page and I could NOT put it down. There's something in the way MacBride grabs me with his characters, dialogue and very dark humor that lets me accept a level of creepiness and violence that would turn me off of other authors. His very human heroes get really really scared, which gives their heroics more weight, and keeps me biting my nails. The cliffhanger ending seemed like a setup for a follow up visit to this dystopian world. Hope so. Still never read a MacBride book I didn't chow down like candy. Angus King does a brilliant job bringing it all to life.

The theme is nightmarish! Criminals are lobotomised and have their lower jaws removed. However in one case it went wrong. The scariest of the villains is regaining her memory and wants to rebuild her shattered face and body. Then she wants revenge. I started to cheer for the villain. The world that is portrayed is so grim that the reader starts to sympathise and identify with a psychopathic murderer. That is scary!
