Really enjoyed the lead character, Todd Collins, one of life's losers who after a minor traffic incidents finds himself getting more and more enmeshed in desperate criminal activities.
Very fast moving plot and good characterizations.
Will certainly read more by this author.
When he bumps his wreck of a car into a beautiful new Porsche, he is relieved t find that the driver is nowhere to be seen and leaves a note but not with his name and insurance details. It simply says 'Sorry'.
Unfortunately for Todd, the Porsche belongs to a local drugs dealer, who is later picked up by the police for driving with a broken taillight. They discover a large concealment of cocaine and now the drug dealer's boss decides to pay Todd a visit.
Forced to steal a car and then deliver another vehicle to Dallas. Although he's not the sharpest knife in the block, Todd is a little suspicious and pulls over to check out the vehicle a little further. What he finds will change his life forever and will draw him ever deeper into the criminal underworld and for once he's going to have learn and adapt in order to succeed. He knows that his life will certainly depend upon it.
This is a shorter Simon Wood story and an ideal starting point for anyone new to the author's work. Like all Simon Wood books, the story is intriguing, intense and develops at a blistering pace. Full of amazingly clever and devious twists, it's sure to keep you guessing until the very end.
