Well plotted and well written--this is the first I've read in this series--but I must say it's rather darker than I prefer. There's so much double-crossing and double-dealing, which is appropriate for a gang war, but there are no real sympathetic characters and everyone either hates or distrusts everyone else, including the principals. James is very funny, which lightens things a bit, but not entirely enough for my taste.

Le changement de narration dans cette série est surprenant. Ici c’est une bonne surprise, le point de vue de « la femme du chef adjoint ». Iles apparaît un peu moins mauvais que dans les autres livres que j’ai lus.
