A satisfying and well-constructed Chandleresque plot. Sangster definitely makes the grade as a gifted suspense writer.
An unusually shaped plot and vivid characters.
With his new novel, Sangster and Reed rise to new heights. This is a fast-moving, funny, sex-- very sexy -- story. The conclusion is a shocker. Sangster is writing better than ever and James Reed is a very charming character.
A second helping of James Reed should be as well received as the first. Sangster certainly has a ball writing this series
