I won this book in Goodreads FirstReads. Geekily, the first thing I did was calculate my odds. 20 available copies, 769 people entered. My odds of winning assuming that selection was random were 2.6% (1/769 + 1/768 + ... + 1/750). The description of the book sounds kinda anti-Catholic.

I got the book now. It came with a coupon for another free book of the same author (pay only shipping+handling). My first impressions:

* After reading the description on flap of the jacket, I had to make sure if it'

This is a fantastic legal thriller , and a mystery. The author holds nothing back. This seemed more like a manly read to me. Some readers may take offense to the language and his openness but all in all it was a pretty good book

Won this in the first reads contest and needless to say it was disappointing. The first thing that I noticed about this book was that it was very testosterone filled. There are books that appeal to both sexes, but this one screams manly screams. The first 80-100 pages were completely dull and boring. The story picked up and made for a rather interesting story. Except for the fact that the author felt it necessary to put in gratuitous explicit sex scenes. If you don't want to read in detail about ...more

Got this book from Goodreads. Couldn't wait to read it.
Boy was I disappointed in reading it. Not the best book I have read. The language was a little over done. Don't think we need all that to tell something. I know people us that langage, but I don't feel we have to have it in books. The people where boring. The story was slow. I got lost in what I was reading. I had to go back to pick up what was being told. Very disappoint, and would not recommend it.

While I most likely will not read another book by this author, there are men in my life that I would recommed his works too. This is a manly, in your face read. The author holds nothing back and often times for me, discribes in such details, things that made me ill. However, if you can get past the language and his openess, it was a pretty good book.
