5.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling, 18 Sept. 2012

This review is from: [sic] (Kindle Edition)
I really struggled for the right words to do this novel justice without ranting fanatically about everything I enjoyed (and thus giving away half the plot). It is the kind of story that hooks a reader straight from the first couple of chapters and doesn't let go.
Kelly creates a group of characters that catch the imagination instantly. Brought up on what is best described as 'the bad side of town' they all have a whole host of tics and personality flaws that make them unique and identifiable, right from the off. You know they're not necessarily 'good' in the black and white sense that a lot of novels sport, but you certainly like even the worst of them.
And as they all fall into the game, reader objectivity goes out the window. Predictably, something that at first appears relatively innocent, very quickly spirals out of control. It adds a building sense tension that runs all the way through. Anything could happen, really, and so there wasn't a point where I wasn't wondering frantically what was going to happen next.
Kelly's book is obviously designed to get the reader thinking - whether it is about the human psyche or the inevitability of change - and it certainly does just that. But even if these concepts aren't your thing, there are plenty enough surprises to keep your interest and, at the very least, no reader could finish this book and not think 'would I play?'
