I'm a big fan of Don Winslow and will read everything he writes. I wasn't disappointed in this book, but it shows that Winslow was only developing his 'voice' when he wrote it. The plot takes a few too many twists and turns to be completely believable and if Neal Carey is suppose to be all that smart why does he never seem to catch on?
But in the end I really liked this book and more or less read it in one sitting; I'm not sure what more you can ask of a novel.
And I'll add this to all my reviews from now on: Will those idiots who want to complain about the price of Kindle editions please go somewhere else, like the Kindle forums, and not give 1 star reviews to books because they felt that a couple of bucks is too much to pay!
