The author writes with an eye for detail that is almost documentary yet somehow does nothing to mar the pace. Political correctness is precisely skewered in passing, and there is some delicious deadpan humour. Towards the end there is a marvellous riff on the theme of the new chief replacing the old new chief. R ead and enjoy.
If this is pulp fiction it is very high class pulp fiction.
