I was wrong to think that there were floodlights. Nobody's got a torch lit. There's no need. She's difficult to look at. She's too bright. She's lighting the whole damn scene with her blood. Welcome to Vox. A city of perpetual night, existing under a star that burns in darkness. Light-starved citizens shoot up on Prometheus while the wealthy live in the radiance provided by three Hearts that beat light into the city. Aquila. Corvus. Cancer.

I haven't read much noir or detective based books in the past. This book gave me a very good introduction into that world.

A very imaginative book with a winding story that keeps you hooked. I listened to the audio book obsessively over 2 days at every and any opportunity I could.

I will listen again and read at some point. I already have Oliver's next book on my bedside table and can't wait to get started after this.

I highly recommend this book.
