While reading this I was reminded of the TV show True Detective in that the book has great set pieces, intense characters and a story loaded with atmosphere (but the ending is far better!).
Stevens does a lovely job casting the city as a character too. Its streets, bars and backwaters rise fully-formed from the page and stay with you long after the story ends.
The novel is compelling and highly readable without being formulaic. A terrific read - I was hooked from the start.
