really liked it
Read in December, 2011

The formula works well again. All the old stereotypes are still in play. The violence on both sides is still excessive. The lack of triumph of good is still missing. One of the things about Burke's novels is that I can never understand two things: one the dialogue. Whatever the slang or street talk, I have no clue what it means. I have to wait till later in the story to figure out what must have been said. Second, I do not understand how quickly people react. How easily everybody is offended or insulted or pissed off. It is beyond me.
