This is by the same author as Night Film. It was a totally different style of book though - I thought. I won't say I disliked the story. It was another long read. And most of the read I wondered what the point of the story was? Where the author was going? It was a pleasant story. The story follows a bunch of kids in high school, a group of hoodlums really - at least that is what they want you to think. While it is different from Night Film in most aspects - know that it is a bit of a "Who done it?" mystery as well. It just takes a really long time to get to that point.
A good book. Well written. I wouldn't put it on the top of your to read list, but worth a read.
