"Like the love child of John Le Carre and Quentin Tarantino." - Diogenes, Amazon reviewer "Dougherty writes with great confidence, supplying engaging backstories to her often repugnant but fascinating characters, and bringing them alive, warts and all. " Gibson, W, Amazon reviewer "The plot and action is there, but the more important (and thrilling) part is the setting, the tone, the introspection of the characters and the style of the writing."
