Despicable Character You Love to Hate
Stuart is a criminal and completely deplorable.
From laundering money to petty theft, from withholding child support to swindling money from bank accounts, this man does it all with zero regret. Still, the character is extremely well written. By the end of the first chapter, I really hated this guy.
I felt for the character, Danny, in chapter two as he discovered money missing from his account, but then the writer slipped up a bit with the call the bank's customer service. Perhaps CS in NZ really is abrupt, rude and will hang up on a caller, but it's never been my experience and I can't imagine a bank really speaking to a customer in that manner. Still, it didn't deter from the excellence of the story moving forward.
Turns out that Danny is a P.I., so you kind of know where this story is headed. Still, the journey getting there was supremely entertaining. I really like this guy's writing style. Nice.
