Flick and Joi are likable main characters. Both are the children of master criminals and suffer for it. They find each other on the street and delicately join forces until Flick disappears into the potential tomb that is the Mendel Academy.
Ostensibly a philanthropic boarding school that trains and teaches underprivileged teens so they can succeed in the upper echelons of society it is really a school for master criminals. Flick is appalled at the alma mater of his dear old dad and enters the school for one purpose- to destroy his father.
But Flick is a complex person with a universe of conflicting values rattling in his extremely competent brain. His mission shifts as time passes and is complicated beyond measure when Joi leaves the street and enters Mendel herself.
Lots of twists and turns delivered with Miller's signature wit set amid disturbing and grim criminality. For readers with a tolerance for gore.
