Editorial Reviews

Review

''With its harsh descriptions, violence, brutal sex scenes, and gritty dialogue, Lot's Return to Sodom is for hard-core crime-fiction fans.'' --Booklist

From the Author

"This inside story had to be shared.  What the law enforcement has to deal with during the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally to protect us citizens from the 1% motorcycle clubs is jaw-dropping.  LOT'S RETURN TO SODOM is dedicated to my friend, Mick Sherer, an FBI agent who worked the rally for years, and to everyone like him.  My thanks.

Enjoy this crazy 'Carerras meets Chrome', 'Luciano vs. Leather' Liv Bergen mystery thriller, number two in the series," Sandra Brannan, author of LOT'S RETURN TO SODOM, 2011 Top 50 Amazon E-books for Women's Mysteries.

While I enjoyed the 1st in the series, this book was just a bit too gruesome/realistic to me. Liv goes it on her own again to help solve the mystery and I found her to be "dense" this go round while the first novel showed Liv as savvy and shrewd. No, Liv was out on a limb most of the book, not wanting, taking or asking for help. Would someone really "forget" to take the gun they dropped with them? No, I don't think so. If I saw an evil motorcycle gang coming up to my house, I'd do more than run out the back since I had the authorities on the phone.

While Brannan leads us down the path of thinking the 1st "death/murder" will be the missing younger sister this isn't the case as the plot continues to develop.

In the 2nd of the series, Brannan is too graphic for my tastes and I didn't care for the motorcycle theme especially since they weren't the "culprits" so to speak.

Yes, Liv and Streeter eventually meet even though it should have been much sooner and yes, there is the romance already working for them in the next installment, but it's not enough for me to invest the time it takes to get through Brannan's work. Her books are a bit long and over-done while don't leave the satisfaction intended.

I reviewed In the Belly of Jonah by Sandra Branna earlier this year and was really looking forward to reading her second book of the series, Lot's Return. It was very much a let down and was not as good as the first book in this series. Once again we have Liv Bergen involved in solving the crimes; this time in the area of Sturgis SD near her family's mining company. Of course with Sturgis there are bikers and the annual raunchy display.

The story line was all over the place and in dire need of editing for cohesiveness. The story did not flow well. There was a particular sexual assault that I think was only thrown in for shock value, but the repeated reference to the act was just unnecessary and tedious.

The characters also have some problems. Although I think the character of Murley was supposed to be a creepy, slimy character, he came off as a sympathetic and almost likeable. The character of Liv witnessed a crime, photographed it and did not tell police even though someone ended up dead! It was just unbelievable.

The Biblical references in both books have nothing to do with the story and these are certainly not books where the characters struggle with issues of faith. I am not sure why they are included. The ending was disappointing and unrealistic. I won't put a spoiler here, but let me just say that the FBI simply would not have given Liv a gift that took years of expensive development.

The best part of the book was the Dedication when she told her mother that she didn't have to read the story.

This is the first book from this author I read. I quit reading
after several chapters.

The writing is awkward, especially the male characters' speech (the author doesn't capture well at all how men think and talk).

There are too many abrupt jumps between chapters in time, place, and setting, leaving me confused.

Actually most of the action of the males are somewhat weird and artificial.

It's easy to find considerably better writing for free or cheap on the Kindle. I shall not waste further time with this.

It took me two tries to get interested enough to finish this book. While the writing was not bad there were just too many odd things going on that it was a difficult book to enjoy.

It was clear that the author did not do her homework about motorcycle gangs. For example while she knows about colors she continued to refer to black leather jackets while most biker gangs wear denim jackets or vests.

I also found the incident where Liv photographed the death of a young woman and didn't report it until days later to be unbelievable. And then she refused to give her name but sent the information using her work email? I didn't get it.

When the wife of one character states that the man who has been molesting and raping girls as young as 13 was impotent I was just flabberghasted. Surely the author knows the difference between being sterile or non-fertile (unable to bear or father children) and being impotent (unable to perform the sex act).

Finally, I found the introduction of a dog into the final pages to be bewildering at best. The dog was suppose to be specially trained by the FBI for tracking, trailing etc. and an agent just gave the dog away? It was never explained how the agent obtained ownership of the dog and supposedly the dog belonged to Liv's best friend but Liv had never seen the dog? Very strange.

Overall it was an ok read but I'm glad it was free. Not sure if I should have read the first book to fully understand the storyline. Some aspects seemed confusing and underdeveloped. One character claims to be a suspect but the person in charge keeps trying to put the suspicion on someone else. Liv seemed to be in the right place at the right time too often (or wrong place/wrong time depending on your view). She seems very reluctant to talk to the police in the beginning which I didn't understand. Her dad is a congressman but doesn't seem to play any part in trying to find the killer of his son's girlfriend. And after the way we were introduced to Mully earning purple wings it's hard to like the character as the author seems to want us to. Maybe future installments will get better.
