My Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Gripping and action packed thriller, crime fiction. Or is it? This is the potentially true story of one man’s journey from almost clergy to all out criminal, but a criminal with a way about him, I didn’t expect. He is the proverbial bad boy with that innocence and spiritual aspect. Very hard to wrap my mind around. I have to read the sequel to find out if I am reading him right, wrong or mostly right or somewhat wrong. So much action and adventure packed into this book and I imagine the next chapter of T’s story will be just as rocky and dangerous. I mean the man has mad people skills. He can be in the wrong place with the wrong items in his pocket and he gets a free pass. Mad people skills.
The different destinations and locations that T reaches are so well described you can feel the humidity and the heat. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed the story, the characters and the grittiness of the story.
This is a great book for crime readers! I think it is a great book for those that wonder about criminals and the mafia types. It was a fast paced intense read and now I have to wait for the next book. It is going to be good because Tim Harron is an excellent writer.
