I enjoyed this book immensely and have no hesitation in recommending it. It's worth setting aside some time to read the first few chapters together to really get into the story and get to know Alex, the main character. His is a journey into the past that changes the way he sees the people he worked with and the city he lived in.
Brilliantly described Detroit stands as a city in decay and becomes a character in the story as much as any other. The mood is carefully crafted and provided me with a real emotional context for the story.
This is a slightly unusual take on a crime story and the twists and shocks are artfully woven through the novel.
My other half is now devouring it and taking the book everywhere he goes.
