I have read all of Lawrence Sanders' books and loved all but a few. This was one of those few I forced myself to finish! The characters were over-the-top and the plot strange. Anyone wanting to see Sanders' true talent should read the McNally, Deadly Sins, and Commandment books.
Written by anyone else, I would not have gone past page 10. The cute twist at the end did not save it.

Not sure if I really liked it or it as fast as I could but...hmm
I hadn't read any good reviews on this book yet, the language was crude, theatrical and had many sexual flashbacks but overall I really liked it. The Marlow Chronicles was a short interesting read. I'd recommend it to anyone who'd want something different and entertaining.
