I didn't really expect much out of this book, seeing how I hadn't heard of it but was desperate for something to read and grabbed it cause it was on the "new" shelf at the library. I was pleasantly surprised, though...I did enjoy it. Though right off the bat it tells you who the "bad guy" is, there were still lots of surprises in it. Quite a few subplots running together but it's what made the story interesting.
Soms hoor je van tevoren zoveel goeds over een boek dat je licht gespannen zelf aan het lezen slaat. Je hebt hier tenslotte een potentiële klassieker uit het genre in handen. Maar te hoog gespannen verwachtingen kunnen ook verkeerd uitpakken.

I wasn't sure of this book at first, but the more I read it grew on me. While it wasn't my favorite book, it was a good murder mystery.

If your looking for suspense, action, mystery, thriller, or anywhere in between, then this is your kind of book.

The mob, a couple of hitmen, corrupt policemen and one smart detective. Nothing you haven't read before but oh so well written. Fast hard boiled suspense nothing more and surely nothing less.
