I knew nothing about this book when I picked it up , but this novella was a gritty little gem well worth picking up. A sensible accountant going about his sensible life one day meets a woman in a bar and his life quickly and drastically alters ... It's hard to really tell if it was for better or worse but it sure did make this a fantastic read and gave his life the jump start it severely needed . In here was a bunch of characters that would be priceless to meet in real life! Go read this straight away! I am off now to see if I can find more books by this writer !
