This was not quite what I expected when I voted it and it won the kuforum bookclub choice of the month in October. I can't remember what I expected, but this wasn't it :D
It's quite a surreal police procedural. I liked the police characters and I liked that we got to know a bit about the about-to-be-victims. Smelly Harry was certainly a strange character. I did wonder how involved he was in it all.
This book is written in quite a course way in parts and so might not be for everyone. It is certainly an 18 rating.
I've read other books by Roger Knowles and they are all really different and enjoyable. I did like this one.
