Once you've read one Falco, you'll find yourself wanting to read another ... and another - they are definitely addictive! This one is just as good as the others preceding it, if rather gruesome at times. There's nothing explicitly nasty however - it is more a case of the imagination filling in the details. As well as the usual crime in need of solving, there is also the wonderful backdrop of Falco's family life which as always, is one of the memorable parts of a Falco book.
