If you are looking for a good read, this will give you a good read. The opening chapter has the title 'Money in the House' and things start to happen from there. The characters will not immediately endear themselves to you, if at all, you will be ambivalent to the very end. You will be perplexed by the book's moral ambiguities. I could go on, but these 'reviews' that the Amazon computer requests are not designed to be a substitute for you reading the book. Find out for yourself, isn't it what it's all about?
