Where Did I Go Wrong?
May 22, 2017
Let me start by saying
1) I don't like hardboiled action stories and this is as hard boiled as a 20 minute egg.
2) I don't like excessive foul language and this story has enough f-bombs to level a moderate sized country.
3) Violent books do not appeal to me and here are enough dead and destroyed people to sicken an army medic.
4) The main character of the story is a drunken, drug addled, womanizer who has almost no redeeming characteristics. And he's the good guy of the tale. The rest of the characters are all worse.
But, on the recommendation of a friend, I read about Remo Cobb. I had trouble putting the book down. The story telling is first rate and kept me fascinated the whole way. Give Mike McCrary a shot. You just might find out, with storytelling this good, your preconceived ideas about books can be wrong.
