Zagreb Cowboy

Set in the gritty backdrop of Pre-war Yugoslavia, the author created a host of simple, believable characters moving through an interesting, page turning story. I quite liked it. The good guys are imperfect. The bad guys are well drawn in manner and actions. The dialogue is exactly how you would imagine these characters would speak in improbable situations made real by the talents of this new author. I devoured the story.

Very entertaining

The characters are introduced and developed well. The ironic humour that they all display was appealing.

The author's abIlity to describe the settings is very well done making it easy to visualize how things appear without spending excessive time to describe the scene.

Only criticism is that the wrapping up lacked some details but, as there are other books in the series, I would assume that they are explored later.

Overall, a well-written,engaging and entertaining book. I look forward to reading the next in the series.
