This crime novel, the first of a trilogy, started out well, with a police raid gone mysteriously bad and the officer in charge made to resign. From there, it's all downhill. You’ve got your government and police corruption, endless repetitive dialogue between shopworn stock characters (I stopped counting at 60 of them.), 1st person alternating with 3rd person narratives, diary excerpts, plenty of gruesome murder porn, vomit, generational skullduggery, slimy sex talk, and more, all packed into 243 pages of large print. If I were you, I'd give it a miss...sure wish I had.
