I did not like this book at all and would not recommend it to anybody. By page 12 it felt 'contrived' and I wanted to stop reading it then. But I had to read it for a book club, but only managed to go half way. After our discussion, I then had a quick sneak peak at the end of the book but that did not make me feel any friendlier towards it. I did not like the matter. Found it tedious and heavy going. My working life has involved dealing with crims and druggies and I'm over it. Not a novelty for me. I thought the author was trying to capitalise on having rubbed shoulders with one of the country's most notorious criminals, but not wanting to sound like he was big noting himself about it. The best part of this book in my view was its captivating creative colourful cover.
