"[A] funny, craftily malevolent first novel, an ice-pick-sharp crime story that sustains its film-noir energy all the way to an outrageous whammy of an ending." (The New York Times)
"A pitch-perfect foray into pulp fiction, witty and bitter, with an ironic conclusion that makes a neat package." (Library Journal)
This isn't bad. It was enjoyable way to pass the time. If you like movies like Blood Simple and A Simple Plan, if you appreciate almost anything Billie Bob Thorton is in, then you'll enjoy this one. Gardner did a nice job with the narration.
I got this book because I love the narrator but even he couldn't save this book. It was full of characters that were shallow and unlikable. A waste of money.
