As a Brit. with a penchant for American crime novels I downloaded it, and started to read it immediately.......
...Several hours later I put my Kindle down, having read "Set Up.." in one go.
Fair plot, credible characters, good location setting........all in all a very good read.
After leaving Sully, Doyle spends subsequent chapters reacquainting himself with characters from his past - Avi Abraham a weapons supplier, BK the mayor and ex-classmate, Ortega the local police officer who threatens to send Doyle back to prison should he step out of line and Mambo DeLima a Cuban criminal. Then Sully ends up dead and Doyle is in the frame for his murder.
And herein lies one of the problems with this novel - new characters pop up almost every chapter through literally the first half of the book (and one or two in the latter half as well) including BK's patriarchal father, Wilson J Whitney, and Doyle's ex-girlfriend Norma who's turning tricks for BK (she immediately becomes his current girlfriend), BK's needy wife Rita, and a variety of Russian gangsters among quite a few others. Unfortunately, the time spent introducing characters, their past relationship to Doyle and / or the crime, means the rest of the plot feels crammed into the second half primarily because Setup on Front Street is relatively short at 50,000 words. So little space is left to fully explore the plot.Read more ›
