it was ok
bookshelves: mystery
Read in February, 2009

Mom passed this on to me when she finished. Definitely more her style than mine - mob, violence, murders and gore galore. The set-up is typical crime thriller - ex-mob killer gets out, gets new name, becomes a doctor and is accidentally found by the mob - but done right and it's pretty witty, but was too cynical and angry for my tastes.
