Little shits like Riley make me itchy, but he comes out pretty real so he's a good character. Style and story are engaging enough to prompt me to read the second book even if, here and there, there are naiveties and holes like: Why is the sketchbook with Coliaro's weakness in Coliaro’s storage room and not in the bottom of the ocean or destroyed centuries ago? How is institutionalized Nick? Why is Riley horrified by Nick's murders but only upset by Westwood's ones? Is he a better fuck?
