For an author to know as much of the street, street ways and talk, and 'ladies of the evening' such as Mariposa, Treshanna, and Amarylis, his life has had to include just about everything. That point is inconclusive as yet.But his knowledge of literature and elegance are proven.
To create the smart, and witty, mouthed Nan, who is a match for Mongo (doubled-up, Mongo?), Reach (good cop), and Gaither (bad cop) shows a writer of the highest caliber. Nan's looks, described intimately as only a man who knows good women can, are straight from the pages of Vogue, and her occupation straight from Maru's 'den mother' teachings. The fact she is "Married to the Mob" does not phase her. Or wired. Or in a safe house. Or becoming enamored of Reach.
What can possibly affect Nan's sense of humor?

Smashwords has a class-act author. I am of the opinion they know it.

Boneyard 11 is written by Linton Robinson and published by Adoro Books. The novel is approximately fifty two chapters and 123 pages in length including contents, author bio and bonus chapters.

Linton Robinson was born in Japan but has lived in Latin America for over twenty years of which he has worked as an English and Spanish journalist. Linton has also written Sweet Spot, Imaginary Lines, and Mayan Calendar Girls amongst other titles, he is also a screenwriter and has a TV series currently in development.

Rudely awoken at a ridiculous hour call girl Nan is about to be handed her next job. A job that asks something big of her. Accustomed to the life and world of whoring Nan is adept at knowing what men want, how to treat them as well as how their minds work. Not only that but she is knowledgeable of the drugs and arms world. Always treating clients the same Nan never expected that when she met Gasper in prison she would actually like him and she certainly wasn't expecting the job to be to marry Gasper and meet with him on a regular basis in prison for their intimate encounter in Boneyard 11. However, if Nan is to prove her loyalty to her husband and if she is to gain the trust and respect of her husbands men then she is going to have to play the part of dutiful wife to the Godfather. Along the way Nan is going to face a number of obstacles including a cop who fancies the hell out her and pushes every one of her buttons, not to mention betrayal in the ranks, and the gun totting Syco with a rather short fuse. When Gasper is attacked in prison and Nan's own life is put in jeopardy she decides to up the game, alter the contract and take charge of her husband's estate. Does she love him? Can she handle the world she has walked into? Or will she leave it all and go back to work?

I've got to read faster. By the time I get my reviews posted, other reviewers have already covered all of the best parts of a book.

I first encountered Linton Robinson in an online writers' forum. I could tell then he was not your typical genre writer. He's a strong writer, good at the technical aspects of it. He's also a good storyteller. His characters are well-developed and, in spite of their usual professions, likeable. Only Linton Robinson could make a prison marriage of convenience seem like a good thing. One reviewer suggested that to write with such knowledge of the subject matter suggests an author whose life has included just about everything. I suspect she's probably right.

I strongly recommend Boneyard 11 and all of his other works.

Format: Paperback
Drug lord Gaspar feels lonely while in Boneyard 11. His wife divorced him and he knows no family member especially his tweener daughter Magdalena and his other kids will visit him; while his gang is banned from any contact. He needs civilian company so Gaspar arranges to marry thirtyish Nan the hooker. This way she can make conjugal monthly visits to him in the Boneyard and he can use her to pass messages with his Chicano gang.

While cops at all level pressure her and try to manipulate her in any way they can, Nan and Gaspar forge a fond relationship as they begin to know one another. Sean Reach and Ray Ray Mobley think they can use her to make Gaspar a permanent prison resident, but she is smarter than they realize. Soon she becomes the target of law enforcement and a drug war between gangs who care not one iota when children die. When someone stabs her spouse, Nan needs to decide whether to watch him die in the hospital or save his life by bringing about a reconciliation with his children.

Boneyard 11 is an action-packed thriller, but clearly character driven mostly by Nan. She is terrific as she learns to live life to the fullest means adhering to her code of ethics, which brings with it hope for something better. The support cast including her mom, the law, the gangs and her spouse are cynics until her seemingly angelic naivety whimsically touch a part of them they thought withered and died. Linton Robinson writes a fascinating but gory tale of a woman of strange influence.

I was really enjoying Boneyard 11 right up to the point when the wife/call girl takes the reins and seemingly single-handedly begins running the crime syndicate ... very successfully, by the way. I understand that this is fiction, but that was just too far-fetched for me to believe. I was really enjoying the story with the triangle of Nan, Gaspar and Reach, but that seemed to just kind of peter out. Supposedly, Nan and Reach had this mad attraction, and then, seemingly overnight, Nan just brushes it off. I don't know ... I guess I just wanted a little more.
