The starting few pages in this book are so amazingly gritty and fast paced, I guarantee that your pulse rate will increase. Brilliant character depth, development and movement. By God! that part of the book where Lamar talks to you about the lion and the woman and the castle is so effing awesome, you almost become a BDSM convert. All this while Mr. Pewtie is having his little affair while being a badass on the field and wonderfully and tastefully written about. How does Mr. Hunter manage to do all this? that is the mark of a genius I guess. This is a must read, people.
