Black gives the reader a sharp picture of criminal life, of its habits, and tastes. He etches it with the details of everyday life. The intensive action of the novel is punctuated by a cultural sub-text, by the things these men and women do to relieve their bruised lives.
His investigation throws up some unpalatable facts, such as the seeming complicity of the police in the brutal killing. These are venal characters competing in a polluted food chain, and this is the work of a highly accomplished portrait painter. Black portrays the bleak reality of crime, and has placed it in a compelling fast paced story that will not let go of your collar. And the ending is a necessary and unavoidable shock.
