This book is the third in a series following ¿the scandalous misadventures of Hiram Grange.¿ I was told that you do not need to read the books in order to understand them, and since this was the first book in the series that I have read, I can tell you that I had no problem understanding the plot or the characters. The book was an interesting read. The narrative moved along quickly, and like Hiram, I did not know what to expect around the next corner. The story jumped around like a chicken with its head freshly cut off. The story was frightening at times with vivid images reminiscent of a horror movie but would switch to a riveting tale more closely associated to a techno-thriller. The main character¿s appearance and drug use gave the book a sleazy, back alley, private detective feel to it. These different features meld together nicely to paint a bleak picture of a decaying urban jungle that is Hiram¿s world. Add a few demons and some power crazed mortals and you¿re in for one hell of a ride!
This third installment of the Hiram Grange series is a hard book to review without giving away spoilers. There were fewer drug references than I expected, given everything Hiram went through in the last book. In this installment, drugs save Hiram like penicillin to an infection. The plot is fast-paced and the chronology is twisted up, emphasizing cause and direct effect of the action-based plot. This is also the goriest book so far - I'm not complaining, just putting the fact out there. I'm eager to read the next installment - I want to know what's going to happen to Grange in the long-run.
