I liked it enough to read any sequels. There were a few annoyances - the repetition of Karen's 'hey you', Frank's punchline of jokes that really didn't add anything to the story, and the too quick development of Ian's relationship with Karen. In real life, that would be red flagged.

The story was interesting though and I did like the main character for the most part.
