With a colourful cast of richly delineated characters, a protagonist with whom the readers will easily identify - all big-hearted, quick-tongued and hair-trigger-tempered - this novel provides a fast-paced ride through some of the more dubious nooks and crannies of the American dream. - Maxim Jakubowski, Guardian on CHINA LAKE
