This book is like a Coen Brothers movie, funny and dark. Max Fisher has been incarcerated in Attica whilst Angela Petrakos finds herself in prison on the island of Lesbos. But whilst Angela soon finds herself out Max is still doing stir. With lots of killing, a con man, a lesbian book writer, a vendetta, colourful characters, and break-outs this book is frenetic.

An entertaining read this book is ultimately completely bonkers; with a plot line that is never that strong these two authors still manage to pull something off. Although published under the Hard Case Crime banner this is more crime noir meets black comedy, meets farce. This is just something to sit back and relax with as you go with the flow, and have a good chuckle on the way. The thing that I really love about this is the character of Max Fisher. The man isn't young and neither is he slim, but he believes that he is a babe magnet and that he is Mr Big, and as you soon discover in the first few pages of this book, the man is so delusional that he convinces others.

If you are looking for something serious and hard-boiled, then this isn't it, however if you are just looking for escapist fun then you should enjoy this.

I think you have to go in to this story with an open mind, I loved the humour but also loved the violence and the over the top nature of some of the experiences. Not a world I would ever want to be involved in but great fun reading about! I will now get the other books featuring 'The M.A.X'. If you like the Hard Case Crime genre then this is definately one to add to your library.
