The writing style wasn't quite what I expected. Emmins is a British journalist who chronicles the work of Neal Smither, a professional cleaner in California. A professional cleaner of crime scenes.
If you like detail on how one might go about cleaning up a putrefying body in a bathtub, then this is your book.
Smither is quite a character, a mix of unabashed entrepreneur, Mr Bravado and family man. He is, above all however, a hard worker who takes pride in his business.
It was interesting.
