"Someone once said of Raymond Chandler that he wrote 'as if pain hurt and life mattered.' That's true of Josh Stallings, too. Hop on, kick the starter, and let him lead you on a long, painful, but entertaining ride through Moses McGuire's world. One hint: wear your helmet and your leathers. It might get messy."
-Tad Williams

This was a great read. Moses McGuire, a thug/strip club bouncer with a heart of gold, is a character for the ages. The author makes him a believable, nuanced, reluctant hero, who has great insight about the underworld as well as modern society Don't want to tell too much, except that the story was never dull and I want to read the next two in the series.
