In either the discussion and first-person narration, Rigby resembles the gin-soaked love baby of Rosalind Russell and William Powell--except he smokes pot rather than swilling martinis. Rigby's incessant linguistic pyrotechnics may appear like obnoxious overkill to a few. yet readers who roll with the patter--'I desired to ask how come blondes by no means bought round to dyeing their eyebrows yet her eyes have been closed and the gash in her throat ran six inches east to west'--will locate it using the tale ahead at an exciting speed. That's an excellent factor, because the plot's a convoluted mess of sour backstabbing between inventory ne'er-do-wells sniffing after a bootleg drug concession. yet Rigby is a profitable protagonist, and the underlying fight together with his memorably sociopathic brother, Gonzo, is helping make this a wild journey worthy taking.""-Booklist
