it was ok

Ugh. Feels like it started out as Sons Of Anarchy fan fiction and never really became anything else. Several of the key scenes with the biker Jax,er, John Jackson (really...that’s all the effort she went to to change the name) are lifted right out of the TV show.

Apart from that the attempt at a nonlinear narrative was hobbled by the fact there were no real breaks between some of the transitions. We’d literally go from a present-day paragraph to a flashback paragraph with no visible mark. It was jarring.

The third problem is that the only real attempt at suspense is that the non-linear narrative leaves questions unanswered so you have to keep plowing through to find out basic information.
