This is a story of a heist and the heroes are the guys who plan
This is a story of a heist and the heroes are the guys who plan the heist. It starts off with medium tension and then Rankin raises the stakes with every chapter with twists and turns that heightens the tension to a superb climax at the end. he characters are deeply cast and engagingly developed such that you end up liking a couple of them and rooting for them. The tension of the situations are heightened with exquisite details of the characters' actions and expression, even at a micro level. The scenes are great drama. The city and its locations are also laid out for with the same exquisite and loving detail.
He uses 7 POVs in total - 6 of them the POVs (points of view) of 6 of the gang members involved in the heist, and the last one, that of the policeman who is chasing them. One wonders whether all of the POVs - particularly the peripheral characters' ones - are necessary. At a few points there are POV wobbles - hopping from one head to the next - in the same para or section. These are only a few minor distractions.
