How would you feel if you were—through no fault of your own—evicted from where you were living and had little time to find a new residence? Tenants band together and, wow, do they take the matter into their collective hands! Darkly humorous, the observations of lives hanging in the balance are realistic as well as they are edgy. This is a well-crafted, fast paced work. Since it’s not a long novel, I was amazed at how skillfully Garwood dealt with this rather extensive cast of characters. Hard to believe this was his first published novel! Although the ending isn’t unexpected, I was more than satisfied with it, as justice finally gets served. It did take me more than a minute to keep a couple of the minor characters straight, but once I was able to, they added even more credibility to this entertaining tale.
