Razor Blades is a pulpy, energetic, violent read about a brutal gang on the road to self-destruction written in alternating POV's. The writing style is very vivid and borders on being over-the-top...there are lots of descriptions of blood and broken bones and bruised knuckles. A few of the brief interludes into the mindsets and psychologies of the gang members were poignant. I enjoyed the character musing on all of the innocent people in the city park being oblivious to their looming evil deeds as they cruised through in their car.

As a debut novel much of this was unpolished, but the rawness fit the story. This might not be to everyone's tastes, but there's definitely an audience for this style.

I look forward to more from Noir Hayes.
