It was definitely thoroughly researched, and the narrative is well pieced together. There's even a photograph of some of the buildings, characters, and scenery at the end of every chapter. This was definitely a nice touch, and you'll appreciate actually being able to see things like the roof of the bank where the heist took place.
As far as reading time, it took me about an hour at a pretty leisurely pace, and I'm not a fast reader. I think this was a great length though for this story. It's certainly a page turner, but it wouldn't have hurt to have more detail in a few places. You'll enjoy it if you're looking for a good, engrossing short read.
Thanks, Amazon, for the new Kindle Singles. I will be reading more of them.
Ratliff has Michael Lewis's ability to take a non-fiction story and make it play like a Hollywood movie, in this case Ocean's 11 (except good). If this heist hadn't actually happened, you wouldn't have believed it could but Ratliff takes you right there.
This and the imagination of Steig Larsson make you wonder what on earth goes on in Sweden.
I like the Kindle Singles format a lot.
I look forward to more Singles from Mr. Ratliff.
