This is an interesting book both in its content and presentation. Each chapter is written from the point of view of one of the characters. Even the dog has his say. The book was well written; however, the ending seemed unclear. Don't know if the author intended to be ambiguous or if I just missed something.

The book was satisfying because wrongs were righted and the good characters largely triumphed. Violence and depravity were core themes in the book, but they were presented tactfully and with moral clarity.

Worth the read. Probably not a 4 star book but much closer to that than to 3 stars.
