Crime without the usual flowery descriptions and drawn out scenes. This is just boom-boom-boom from one scenario to another in a noir gritty like way.I thought it was too flighty and shallow for my taste. Not enough seriousness in the gritty or darkness in the noir.The writing style was distinctive. Long drawn out paragraghs made it hard to follow sometimes.I have to say it just didn't tick the boxes for me. I found it very B-movie like and felt it lacked any real depth or emotion. I am not sure why the sub-plot of the brother was made into such a major item, as it had nothing at all to do with the story. Every time the baby brother was brought up it felt as if there would be some kind of hint or revelation, instead what was supposed to be an indicator of the mother and son guilt racked relationship fell flat.
