3.0 out of 5 stars OK Crime Novel, 5 Dec. 2013
By 
This review is from: Cocaine Nights (Paperback)
Very much a crime thriller, it wasn't really what I expected. Although cocaine was mentioned as a past time I expected a book at lot more about parties and the drug culture, rather than a crime novel, trying to prove the innocence of one of the characters after a house fire. It is set in the ex-pat community of the Costa Del Sol during the 1990's and does give an idea of the hedonistic lifestyle and has a darker undertone that you do not really begin to see or understand until 2/3s of the way through the novel. It took a very long while to get going and only really reaches a basic conclusion with many aspects left either unanswered or open to interpretation. None of the characters are likeable, including the main character who is easily led, and led to believe many untruths, but this seems to be the part of being swept up in the lifestyle of doing little during the day except play tennis or golf, with many people turning to drugs to cope with the boredom of everyday life. Long winded with little excitement, with the occasional twist in the storyline.
