Greg. P who reviewed book 1 and refused to continue.... t is not that bad. The readers who took this book to read after finishing all the Joe books, know that Mr. Maberry has improved, immensely. The story in this book does not end. It is a chapter in a trilogy, with two more chapters to come. For those who like the genre, it's a romp. I read all three one after and enjoyed the story. The development, build-up and the conclusion. It is not for the faint of heart. Lots of blood and gore, evil people and non-people. i enjoyed it and then moved on to something totally different. Waiting for a Joe book, Mr. Maberry.
