This isn't my usual genre choice but I wanted a break from reading for study and ordered this as something different. I was most pleasantly surprised! This fast paced, action packed crime/fantasy novel gripped me from the very start. I could 'see' the world of Benjamin Sorrow as a result of Challis' well written descriptive text; it would make a fabulous movie. My only grumble? There's no sequel! Hurry Mr Challis, I need more adventures with Benjamin Sorrow!
