There was an authenticity in the descriptions of the "Pigs" underworld of plot and counter plot, in all its diverse settings, which added to the credibility of the story as it unfolded.
The structure of the book as a series of disparate scenes showed ingenuity and skill. The very act, when reading, of moving from one geographical area to another, gives a fast moving edge to the book.
This is an enjoyable book which could be exploited in film.
