Apart from anything else, this book would have benefited from a good editor: there are numerous spelling and grammatical errors strewn throughout, and whose idea was it to separate every paragraph with a substantial vertical gap? Even the dialogue is treated this way so it's hard to follow which character is speaking, and it can take you a moment to realise that the action has moved to a different location.
The prose consists mainly of joined-up cliches and none of the characters is very likeable, so you end up not caring what happens to them. The frequent sex scenes are a joke: they read like something a third-form schoolboy would come up with, but at least they provide something to smile about in their awfulness, which is a relief since there's precious little humour to be found elsewhere.
I can only urge prospective book-buyers to be wary of reviews in general, and to treat over-blown critiques of this book in particular with generous doses of cynicism.
Not at all what I expected from one of my former squash playing associates.
The Liverpool underworld is clearly not a place to treat lightly and I found the writing style to be interesting and although this is not my first choice of topics, I did find it fairly fast paced and compelling.
For a first novel Nick has produced something that most only dream of doing and I feel honoured that I have in some small way contributed to what is a great charity.
