It's a good
book. I was struggling with interest for the first half, primarily because I found every one of the characters to be, at best, remarkably unpleasant. At least one character (usually more) is one or more of the following: embezzler, vigilante, adulterer, murderer, thief, burglar, defiler, rapist, idolator, fornicator. And then there is the ineffectual one.
Once I focused on the plot, I liked it.
Early on, it reminded me of "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" -- a movie I hated
. Good guys should be good (in the opinion of a 12-year-old me). The more-than-12-years-old me is somewhat (but only somewhat) more tolerant of moral frailty.
