Funk Rating: 9 out of 10
This was a great book by a new author (to me) with a great new character. This is a great thriller that kind of splits the gap between detective mystery, spy thriller, and political storyline. What I loved was that the political storyline was underplayed and the detective mystery was the headliner.
The characters are all pretty original. I wouldn't say as far to the edge as Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, but far enough to be fascinating. Some great writing that has a sense of humor and wit, and some great pacing in the writing. The main characters are "cleaners" who clean up after dead bodies. Gives them reasons to have "skills" without creating another agency and terrorist plot that they have to uncover and stop. In this case, they can pursue their own agenda - for loyalty, friendship, and "good"...
This was the 2nd by this author and I'm certainly going back for #1, and then looping back around for #3. I'd definitely put this on your paperback list - it's a worthy read.
