A Musing Reviews | 05 January 2011 | Nancy

This book starts out questionable which should have clued me in. Naked woman nearly dead on bed in a gang-controlled hotel. Not quite dead so maid finishes her off.

 

The protagonist is Al Jeery, a gang member who seems to still have some morals, although I fail to see them. He wants to find out who killed his lover, Nic. His boss encourages him to investigate. Turns out Nic was very much into sexual exploration, as is her brother, Nick. Seriously. Nic and Nick. Then he meets Paucar Wami who is completely without a conscience. He tortures his victims and this is described in detail, along with the sexual exploits of different characters. But then more people keep dying and I'm getting reeled into the story, thinking the ending is going to tie it all together.

 

Then the ending comes and I find I'm just ticked off that I spent half a day reading a book only to have it explained in Voodoo dolls and blind Incan priests.

 

Mmmmkay, really? So disappointed.

 

2/5 stars.
