The book is not poorly written, but it is far from a great piece of literature. The plot is straightforward and easy to follow throughout, but the ending is anti-climactic. Several Deus Ex Machina come together to solve the central puzzle that lingers throughout the novel, namely, who shot Harry?

The book does succeed in creating likeable anti-heroes, but the ending is so abrupt that it undoes many chapters of hard work setting it up. After completing it, I kept tapping my kindle page to see if there was more.

If you like gratuitous sex and drugs in your reading, then this book would be fine to pick up for a superficial quick read, but don't expect anything deep. It tries to tread into a dark area, but ultimately fails to captivate. Too many dark issues (suicide, drugs, incestuous rape) are glazed over with little attention to really make the point the author was aiming for.

I would only recommend it if you can find a cheap or free copy. I got it for free on my kindle, which is the only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of one.

I read a lot and don't generally mind a book written with localized dialect, but this book had characters who were too difficult for me to understand. Yes, I'm rating a book I didn't finish. I liked the initial plot but it was so hard to wrap my mind around the English slang that I just had to put it aside. Be prepared if you want to read it.

I just finished Poisoned Saints by Ben Coulter and I must say it was quite a roller coaster ride. For starters I’m an American and had no idea there was a drug problem in the UK. I loved the dialect and the conversations between the characters were certainly easy to follow in spite of the differences. I had to like the “bad boys” because, well, they are likeable anti-heroes. In fact I preferred Charlie and his mates to Detective Jack Cloud. It’s a good story with a solid plot and if you like mysteries you’ll enjoy it. If you’re offended by swearing, drugs, and sex you probably won’t like it at all. I found the language and behavior made the story more real and fit in with the characters. (But I’m still amazed there are gangs and drug dealers in the UK.)

A great story with a realistic feel. I really enjoyed the characters and dialogues Ben Coulter created and finished this in no time at all. As one other said, Ben creates a group of likeable anti-heroes whose side you find yourself taking despite their illegal activities. I can understand some non-English readers who found some of the dialogue hard to follow but added to the realism. A good easy read.

It kept me interested although at times I was put off by the explicit language. The ruthlessness with which these drug lords eliminate their competitors and others so frequently and in such cold blood is frightening but is expertly captured in a raw and unapologetic manner. Definitely couldn't wait to find out what happens at the end!

This book was fast paced right from the start and never slowed down. There were many twists and turns along the way.
If you like Crime/ thriller books then this is a must. This was the authors first book and I can't wait to read his second.
