I grabbed this one off the shelf based on the quotes on the back cover...Warren Ellis spins a twisted tale, but a "Dante on paint fumes" or a "bipolar Raymond Chander" he is not.
It's a PI story with lots of sex thrown in. After a while, the various sexual fetishes described get old, and seem like they're thrown in for shock value more instead of being a true, necessary part of the book.
And the chapters seem to be written for people with no attention span whatsoever. It's annoying. Call me old fashioned, but chapters should reflect a change in scene, narrative, direction in the story...Most of the new chapters are placed where there should simply be a break or a pause in the story.
