This is a fast paced action thriller.
Dale, an incompetent drug dealer with his junkie girlfriend botch a deal and head to a lakeside cabin to lay low. They are pursued by a couple of psychopathic Indian hitmen of the Sub-Continent variety. Things take a dramatic and darkly comic turn, when Tom Stokes, a family man looking forward to celebrating his birthday crash lands in the cabin, trapping a buck naked Dale in a bath tub. This could make a good action film but as a book it is a bit lightweight, there is little in the way of character development, for instance.
There are some bizarre moments, none more so than when Sanj breaks into Tom’s house to take Tom’s pregnant wife hostage, who promptly goes into labour. Our hard as nails Indian hitman, faints when after the baby is born the placenta emerges…
My rating 3 out of 5
