superb book, so far. I'm thrilled. when I committed to a reading guide called Brit Noir, I just started blitzing my Wishlist with titles, for future acquisition. as covers came on display while I did this, obviously this book caught my attention, as did the little I saw concerning the storyline and setting. so, sometimes you take a chance and pull something from a wishlist cuz it's calling to you above all others--and it's worked out well this time! I would love to visit Belfast, but maybe not to hang around with anyone who behaves like these Wee Rockets. horrid little beasties, but they do fit nicely into sleek Irish Noir novel, I daresay. hooked on these characters until the bitter end.
