Good to see how much an talented author can do in so few pages. I only picked it up as it was free on amazon for a few days as I knew nothing at all about the author but I shall now be checking out more of his work.

Buy it, it's about the same price of a packet of crisps and will take about the same time to finish. Healthier, innit?

Shelves: crime
The author makes excellent use of just a few pages, creating a sharp, nasty tale of revenge.
