The cover blurb declares Hodgson “the most demented writer since Carl Hiaasen.” I would profoundly disagree.

Hodgson’s writing is not bad, just not executed to the high standard one would expect with such a comparison, or without it. The best I can say is that it is readable if no better options are available.
