I found this to be definitely one of the better more recent examples of the genre, though it also felt like it heavily borrowed from previous examples. (Strangely, reminded me especially of "A Lesson in Vengeance" but I found this to be much better). I was a little let down by the narration of the audiobook - the narrator is very talented but was doing entirely too much for the tone of the novel which somehow impeded how much I could enjoy it.
