Relies too much on coincidence,

I really, really wanted to love this book. I could damn it with faint praise and say it is a better book than Warren Ellis' first novel, but it's just too anaemic.
The story is slight and largely predictable and relies on an implausible coincidence or two. There is a climatic scene that you can see coming as the elements were introduced and as cheesy as anything on a bad tv cop show. It's a shame, because so many of the details are strong. Ellis excels at characterisation and details, but his overreaching story needs some work.
