it was amazing
Read in April, 2011

I won this book on a mystery books blog. At that point I had never read anything by Marcus Sakey. The book is an intriguing story of four friends who feel their lives are passing them by. The only one who is successful has a big gambling and drug problem. They decide to do something that will change the course of their lives forever.

While reading this I kept imagining it as a movie. I don't think that has ever happened before as I was reading. Hopefully, someday it might be made into a movie as it is an interesting study of what people are capable of doing. If you believe that no one is all good or bad, this book is a compelling argument for that belief.
