Imagine a small-time hood/detective with Tourette’s. That’s just the beginning, and what follows is just as surprising. Imagine a grown-up orphan working in a car service, which fronts for a detective agency, which fronts for a fencing service to a very dangerous criminal organization.
Add a Zen meditation center, a silent Pole of gigantic proportions, and a group of four orphaned men whose hero is the two bit shyster who picked them up when they were just kids and gave them a sense of belonging. Now you’ve got a great story told with insight and true wit. The language alone would make this worth reading.
