The main character, Jimmy Black, is a 42 year old nice guy trying to enjoy a simple life with his wife and baby. I say nice guy because that’s the cause of his problems. Trying to help a friend out, Jimmy Black winds up in over his head with the seedier part of Northern Ireland. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Or at those trying to be good people.
The book is written in the first person. Jimmy is telling his story. He’s a great story teller. Amazing detail is included in Jimmy’s descriptions. I really like this guy.
Jimmy is Irish and uses a lot of slang common to his Homeland. I had to look up a bunch of words. This was my first book from this region. I thoroughly enjoyed being embedded in this tale.
Fast moving page turner.
