My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I wasn’t sure with this one, did I want to read more of David and Raymond when they’d been left pretty happy at the end of Sunset Park? For a lot of this book there was angst, oh lord was there angst.
But, it was all the good kind, the kind that leads people to have to talk, either to each other or to a trusted friend, and both David and Ray did this in spades during this book. Their troubles were totally believable, this was a slice of real relationship life and it was written so well that, at one point, my heart was in my mouth thinking Santino was going to leave them apart!
I should have known better, he would never do that to his devoted Five Boroughs fans right? And sure enough, with incredible skill and fabulous writing he slowly drew all the loose threads back together again to give us a pairing I have no doubt will be sharing that Viagra tablet aged 80 in their nursing home twin beds!
Now onto the mysterious A-Town!
