“It’s been said that it’s better to deal with the devil you know than the devil you don’t—but what they don’t tell you, is that sometimes the devil you know is the more dangerous one.”
I really enjoyed this book. I've always loved the saying, "Better the devil you know than the devil you don't." I was first introduced to the quote in Animorphs when they were so close to killing Visser Three. But I digress...
The way this is written is captivating. Guy Duncan is blackmailed into doing a job for Al Capone, but his world begins to spiral from there. The characters are very well rounded and the interactions are just like an old movie, but for some reason, I find it more refreshing.
I also love twists with my entire being. The big twist was one I pieced together, but it was very well done.
All in all, I really, really enjoyed this book. I didn't expect to like it as much as I did. I definitely recommend reading this one.
Follow Guy Duncan, a private eye blackmailed into doing one last job for the notorious crime tycoon, Al Capone, to square his debt with the infamous mobster. Trust is not a luxury Duncan can afford in a city of devils. But before he can wash his hands of Capone completely, he must first thrust them deep into the filth of the criminal underworld and hope he doesn’t lose his last sliver of humanity along the way.
