I have liked the Mike Yeadings mysteries in the past, but this one was overly complicated and extremely gory. I figured out the culprit well before he/she was revealed in the book, and there were SO many threads going on (including a heroin "mule" who swallowed too many packets of the stuff and you can imagine the result ... quite a red herring). Lots of dysfunctional family stuff, if you like that kind of thing.
