Some really good surprises in this book. IRW's writing really puts you in the front row for a voyeuristic show; you may not always want to be there as the blood and gore splatter all over you!
I did find some of the torturous stuff right on the edge of believable, but then this is fiction, I hope!
His characters are very real, very believable as they all have their flaws and foibles.
I adore the way IRW brings full circle his characters; ASBO: and The Final Winter are both linked in, plus a great cliffhanger at the end!
My only other real niggle is my own disappointed face when I thought I still had 20% of reading left only to find another authors short at the end!
IRW - remains firmly in my top 10 authors!
