The Deliverance of Evil

The Deliverance of Evil - Roberto Costantini, Nigel Thompson I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

Looking at some of the other reviews, I'm obviously in the minority. Though I did like Balistreri and his crew. I was very put off by all of the typo's and translation issues in what appears to be a completed first American edition. I've never seen that many mistakes in an ARC.

I've passed the book along to someone close who also likes this genre, maybe she'll have a better rating/review. Mine is Meh.
