They seem to be getting a little vicious, but still worthwhile...

Review by

I saw that this book was being made into a movie, with Liam Kick-Ass Neeson starring. Oh goodie! This book has <i>got</i> to kick some ass. Plus, wait, oh my god, there's a whole series of these novels with this guy. This is going to be so awesome!<br/><br/>Then, I read the book. I wouldn't call it awesome. I'd call it typical. All these type of novels are the same. Private-eye does some shady dealings with drug dealers, and everything goes wrong. Its the same shit as Jack Reacher and a million other novels. Nothing new. Move along.<br/><br/>That being said, it's still a good book. Plenty of action. People get killed and chopped into little bits. But, even that's not original. Okay, packaging each little bit, like they're chunks of salami was a bit unusual. It's just not impressive, after you've read several of these types of books.
