Before I start my I just make it clear that I am normally a fan of these biographical real crime type books, however, this one is terrible. The main reason is down to the writing.
The story is extremely disjointed and written quite childishly (I think it trying to be humerous but isn't). Talking about 'KungFu kicks' and 'he wasn't expecting a World Class Athlete...' etc just doesn't work. Another area of lacking is in the detail of the incidents included in the book. The subject's life has obviously been a very scary one however this really (and I mean really) does not come across in the writing.
To be honest, I wouldn't even recommend this to die hard fans of this genre.
