I bought this because The Guardian mentioned it in the culture section and I have to say I am not at all disappointed, not one bit. I loved everything about the book, the characters were picture perfect and the whole atmosphere was so intense.

Just bought the second book, 'American Savage', and I can't wait to start on it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money, 7 Mar 2014
