My rating: 4 Stars
My opinion: I am a John Rector fan and it is because of this type of writing. Rector weaves a story that one wonders what is real and what is twisted. There was a sense of realness to this book as well. One could honestly see it happen.
One of the things that I loved about this book that normally isn't a favorite of mine is that it is told in first person narrative. It really helped to make the book pop and developed a connection with the narrator (Matt) to understand why he would participate in such a crazy idea.
Although I wouldn't say that this is my favorite Rector novel, it is a good one and not to be missed.
