There is something about this book that is quite promising in the early stages. The separate stories are slowly drawn out and I was intrigued as to how it would all come together. Sadly when it did it became totally unbelievable, from black mailing bank managers getting revenge for a golf tournament, police giving huge drug hauls back to the dealers to a one man invincible vigilante it just didn't work for me.

Although the plot and story is implausible, the object of a book is to entertain and I felt this hit the spot. I enjoyed escaping into Alex's world for a while.
