Mike Sager’s Deviant Behavior delves into the lives of a lot of characters—a reporter, a teenage runaway, a billionaire, a high-profile gay activist, a music legend, various law enforcers (some honest, some not), pimps, hookers, and gang members—on seedier side of late 80s-early 90s Washington, D.C. I like stories with intersecting characters, but there are so many in Deviant Behavior that it’s hard to keep track of who’s who. Everyone has a story to tell, but that doesn’t mean every story shoul ...more
I started this book on the recommendation of my husband, who's not an avid reader. But I thought I'd give it a go even though I didn't really know what it was about. It was an interesting read, albeit not subject matter I'm used to reading. None the less, it was a nice change of pace. My only complaint is that it tied itself up quickly and a little too perfectly.
For a book that started out so promisingly, the final half of the book is a letdown. Without ruining what, I suppose, is supposed to be twist ending let's just say that you'll be either confused or annoyed that you read the whole book.
Worst book I've read in a long time. Pointless and stereotyped characters, too many plots that don't come together in any meaningful way, and feigned, generic philosophical statements that have no depth.
Decent thriller -- gives lots of local color (even if it conflates streets for poetic license). Not a great nvoel, but an engaging bit of fluff.
