Entertaining...high-speed...with lots of twists and turns...it has a Tarantino-meets-the-Coen-Brothers feel to it.
The action accelerates up and down the ten carriages but the question is: who will get off alive?
Isaka knows how to keep his readers on their toes. His characters are colourful, varied and morally despicable...there's much more to it than a thrill-a-minute action fix. It's dark, funny, absurd and it certainly boast the most interesting bunch of characters we've seen in a while.
An entertaining thriller and a farce with a high body count... Kill Bill on wheels or a locked-room crime drama played out at 200mph
