Read full description of the books:
Confusing. The cover confused me for a start - I picked it up half thinking it was a Chris Brookmyre (not the first time I've confused these two authors) but even after then was confused because the format of the book suggested it might've been aimed at a Young Adult audience - which (I assume from the plot) it wasn't.
But it was OK - an Irishman with a secret in the past has started a new life in the quiet Canadian town of Niagara.. that is, till a reincarnated Native American princess gets washed up in the river, a pop star is involved in a fatal accident, and there are all kinds of resonances with drugs and killings and gangsters. In some ways it did work as well as other books of this ilk I have read, but it did feel confused and over-crammed in places, and the 'humour' descended into 'wise asscrackery' frequently. I am pretty sure I didn't fully understand it because I lost track of things in the last quarter, but this was because I couldn't be arsed to keep up with quite how many characters and twists the author chose to cram in.
