Long and rambling, full of disarming honesty. Disappointing to one who loves his novels. Disappointing in the sense that he radically demystifies himself, not pulling punches in describing his own long periods of despair, drinking and womanising - fi ...more

Crushing sadness runs through every word and every page of this well-written book.

At one level - a fun and over-the-top detective novel about a PI in New Orleans. At another level, I found deeper elements that made a big impact.

Gritty, violent, well written. If Charlie Fox had been a man I probably wouldn't have got past page 50. As a woman she brings something fresh.
