While the concept is sound and entertaining, the execution is lacking in any polish whatsoever. The use of the word "Anyway" to segway from self-absorbed exposition back into the action is a very junior high writing contest technique, and disappointing in a published work. However, the main reason the story doesn't receive the 5 stars it should is due to the characters. The lead character is so damn unlikeable, all the way through the book. Prejudiced, rude, arrogant, horrible values, questionable morals, and none of it in moderation, the guy is just outright an ass. His shrew wife isn't worth the effort he goes to, his back-stabbing best friend/business partner should have been deep-sixed years ago, etc. It's hard to enjoy the story when the characters are incessantly self-sabotaging and undeserving of such situations as are presented. This book needs an editor with a firm hand and a cattle prod (no pun intended).
