First of all, that blurb completely drew me in. I was pleasantly surprised by the way Harvey Havel was able to keep me on my toes. 

I liked trying to understand Droogan and his motives throughout the novel. 

 I'll have to admit, I was surprised in a couple of places throughout the novel. A Crime / Mystery / Fiction Novel.
