A short excerpt:

"The woman with the choker slid over, inspecting me with all the subtlety of a dog in heat - it seemed she had no better taste in men than jewelry. Up close she looked like someone better seen from further away. 'I don't believe I've had the pleasure,' she began.
'Are you mad? I had you last year at Lord Addington's spring formal! We went behind his pagoda and I took you from the rear. You said I was the best you ever had!'"

I loved the Warden, I loved the first-person PoV. I love the slum setting and the seedy gangsters. Unfortunately I saw the twist coming, yes even the first time I read this back in 2014, but, BUT I still really love this book and can't understand why it has a average rating of 3.83? Deserves to be higher.
