My Thoughts
When I first began reading Crusher I did not know what to think of it.  I enjoyed it enough to want to continue reading but didn't quite feel like it would keep me interested.  All of that changed when Finn finishes his shift at work and goes home to find his Father dead.  He calls the police, and ends up being their prime suspect.  After being let out of police station Finn goes home and tries to pick up the pieces and carry on with life, as well as trying to find his dads killer.

As soon as Finn's Dad was murdered the action picks up the pace and soon we see Finn doing ridiculous dangerous things in order to try to get closer to who he thinks is the murderer.  I soon found myself becoming engrossed with the story and making a mental list of suspects in my head.  Each new person that Finn comes into contact with was soon added to the list, and soon found themselves being crossed off.  Crusher keeps you guessing right to the very last page about who did it and also what will happen next.

However, although I did enjoy Crusher, only a few things actually stick in my mind; Finn sneaking into a known gangsters home to find out more about him, Finn's total disregard to his own life, and Zoe, Finn's girlfriend.  Finn goes though so much in Crusher in such a short period of time that it blended together, and I will have to re-read this another time when I don't have to focus on work to see if it makes a difference.  Crusher is an action packed, fast paced thriller that keeps you on your toes and constantly second guessing yourself.
