A very unique story. I must say that what I was expecting the story to be was not at all what it was. I found Damiano to be a most intriguing character and his quest to do what is right was very admirable, though I did not always agree with his methods. You don't see a whole of writers exploring moral complexity anymore. Yet MacAvoy has managed to create a somewhat morally complicated character who is worth the read in and of himself. A great read and one that I am happy to recommend to others.
