From page 1, you can tell this is a Jeff Somers novel. And no, that is in no way--for me, anyway--a bad thing. I love Jeff's voice, and the voices of his characters. This is a gritty, fun, kickass read, reminiscent of the feeling of Somers's Avery Cates series, but definitely not a repeat. Everything in this book seemed to work together: the setting, the magic, the language, the characters were all very consistent to create a world I was instantly drawn into. The setting details especially brought everything together. There were plenty of laugh out loud funny lines--one of my favorite parts of Somers's writing--even as you are wincing at the self-deprecation of his character and the painful situations he finds himself in. This novel has a genuine, honest feel to it. Somers is not afraid to tell it like it is in his world. Not a book for mom (well, maybe MY mom might like it, but not yours), but hell, who wants to share it anyway?
