There's a big cast of characters, and one of the many good things about the book is that they're all individuals, they're all interesting, and they all have an important part to play. I'm not saying they're all attractive, but you'll care about what happens to them, anyway. [WARNING: This one tilts toward the noir end of the spectrum. END OF WARNING]
Another good thing is that you're never quite sure where the book is headed. Just when you think you do, Gorman throws you a curve.
The book is expertly paced, too. When I picked it up, I thought it would take a good while to read it. I was wrong. It moves like a bullet right from the first page. I read it in two sittings. The book's not out yet, but when it hits the stands, grab a copy. You won't regret it.
