About the Author

Author Rex Kusler was born in Missouri and raised in a small Iowa town. After calling Silicon Valley home for thirty years, Kusler relocated to Las Vegas to indulge his love of the desert and his fascination with gambling and probability. A mechanical designer by profession, Kusler began his writing career in the early 1980s, selling short stories to regional magazines before trying his hand at novels. He is the author of Angela and three titles in the Las Vegas Mystery series: Punctured, Ashes to Dust, and Desert Drop.

More About the Author

Rex Kusler was born in Missouri and raised in a small town in Iowa. He spent his most formative years reading Mad Magazine and playing tiddlywinks. His writing began with a newsletter for a beer club he founded in San Jose in 1982. Soon afterward he tried his hand at short stories. After success selling some of them to a few regional magazines he began writing novels. Seven years, four novels, three agents, and a pile of rejection letters later, he gave up--for a while. In 2003 he wrote ANGELA. In 2009 he completed the first novel in his Las Vegas Mystery Series PUNCTURED, based on his experience selling his trailer for cash in an RV storage lot after dark. After success as a self-published e-book, it was re-released in May 2011 by Amazon Publishing. The second in the series is ASHES TO DUST, followed by DESERT DROP, and many others.

I have to say that Rex Kusler is one of my favorite authors... Became a huge fan of his Las Vegas Murder Mysteries because of the characters. And here's why he's so good: the characters! Yes there are many ok writers out there who want to tell a story, only they conjure up mediocre people who just prop the story along, as a convenience. Mr. Kusler is different. He could write a story about a guy waiting for the bus; but the guy is painted so rich, interesting, flawed, subtle, curious, and so incredibly human that you are totally engrossed reading about this guy doing nothing! But Mr. Kusler actually has a story to tell too, along with these characters who jump off the page and expect you to tag along with them.

So his latest book, FAMILY, is about Shane's estranged family who takes him back in when the proverbial money runs out. As you follow Shane, you start to realize things can't be what they appear. There are a few surprises, a couple twists and turns, some entertaining characters along the way; then it gets wrapped up so neat you can't even believe what happened, you cheer, then you are sad because it ended. I loved it! If you really enjoy people-watching--with a good story to follow--you will definitely enjoy FAMILY. It is excellent story-telling, characters you wonder if you might really know somewhere in real life, and a fun read all rolled into one package.

You can never go home again--except if you lose your job, you're evicted from your house, and your unemployment is running out. But before you make that trip, you may want to take a moment to consider why you left home in the first place.

When Shane Hall returns to South Dakota, we learn the secrets that lurk under the surface of his eccentric extended family. Bumptious cousins, nymphomaniac aunts and girl friends, clownish neighbors--all good fun, except for that odd menacing tone running through their banter and displays of affection. Then Shane's cousin offers him a job too good to be true....

As always, Kusler's disarmingly straightforward prose lures you in, then slaps you on the side of the head as you stumble into the depths of human depravity. A Steinbeck for the 21st century, Kusler shows how economic desperation has shaped so much of our country. A voice for the common man, laced with gentle humor. Like Garrison Keillor, Kusler's voice charms you and breaks your heart both at the same time. I could listen to his stories all day.

I've read all of Rex Kussler's books. He has a refreshing approach to storytelling. You don't always need a lot of blood & guts to write an interesting murder mystery. Mr Kussler has a more psychological approach to the mayhem. This may be his best book yet.

I liked it, but not as much as the Las Vegas murder mysteries. I couldn't warm up to the characters as I had hoped.

Started out well, and introduced many exciting possibilities as to how it could go, but then just fizzled out. A little bit disappointing.

I've read worse books. This was an okay read. First starting out, it didn't hold my attention but thankfully, eventually it speeds up.
