Amazon.com One Day in the Life of Jason Dean
My review -
This book will no doubt lose readers from the start due to its uncompromising use of ‘bad’ language. I hope they will not be deterred from reading what is a very emotive story. It sets the scene for a man who is an enforcer, a hit man, for a gang boss. He is tough, not afraid of violence, but almost has a ‘secret life’ in that he is fond of literature and loves Shostakovich. He has a surprisingly cultured outlook for a thug. He is also obsessively concerned with buying his daughter Sophie a birthday present.
This is a moving account of a man on the brink of desperation. If you can take the style of language you will be moved beyond belief by the content. I found it a totally gripping read.
