Ian Douglas: The plotline is very unusual, as the main story - the cop taking down the crime boss - it introduced via minor characters. The other strands intertwine and generally confuse, as they throw up issues of morality (sexual fidelity and crime, mainly). Skip this one if you can't stand hip-hop or rap music.
