Our hero is a former car mechanic that is between jobs. He has a history of abuse of alcohol and has one or several crimes listed in his police records. But he is a real person with a great sense for what is right and what is wrong. Starting with a simple mission to get back a car from a work shop that refuses to release it the story then develops into a story of murder, drug trafficking and a number of other issues.
Mr Ulfelder has written a story with great presentation of a number of people, a plot line that works, a believable description of the environment that they work in and also a terrific ending. It was a pure pleasure to read this one. I am now lined up to buy his next book "The Whole Lie".
There are criminal activities, and large amounts of money, and people start showing up from the past, including Conway's father. Many people are not whom they seem to be, and in some confrontations it depends on who is the meanest. The book is hard to put down once you get involved in the plot (I stayed up later to finish it).
The author has prior writing experience, and this is an excellent first novel. It will be a hard act to follow for the author.
