I liked it - it is very addictive!Took me a minute to get with the street slang and poor choices that Chess was making. I think I will have more empathy for the characters when their backgrounds are revealed. I am hooked. Love the dark, gritty storyline... Favorite scene: Terrible kicking Doyle's arse! Favorite line: Chess asked Terrible (after he was obviously injured) to tell her about one of the worst injuries he sustained and Terrible replies: "I once had a dame bite me." I will definitely be reading the rest of the series.
