Graphically brutal crime thriller is an appropriate description for this book. Kakonis has the ability to create deeply flawed characters that never-the-less propel an action stuffed adventure.
Waverly has issues and his soul searching leads him in a journey to his past that embroils him in some Midnight problems. A missing package of drugs appropriated by a minor delusional miscreant puts an assortment of escalating bad guys on Waverly's field of play. A plethora of unnecessary roughness calls would characterize this book with some of the violence stomach wrenching.
Surprising camaraderie plays a part in Waverly's survival. Waverly's mentor in survival skills plays a cameo of sadness. Midnight may play a future role in Waverly's life as short as it may be.
This was a good mystery and action adventure.
