5.0 out of 5 stars Getting better and better, September 3, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Everything But The Squeal (Simeon Grist #2) (Simeon Grist Mystery) (Kindle Edition)
This is Mr. Hallinan's second novel, and the second that I've read. It started out a little rough (for me, your mileage may vary) in the first chapter, as he was setting up the setting (as it were) where much of the novel takes place, but from that point on it was literally very hard to put down. I read it in two days (which is fast for me, as I like to read slowly and enjoy every sentence). Well-drawn characters (love-able and hate-able both) and a story line that sucks you from one scene to the next (and sucks the emotions right out of you).

Highly recommended! (But beware: the novel deals with child-prostitution, and doesn't gloss over very much. Keep a well-secured lock on your emotions...)

WOW. Yet another sock puppet for Tim's books. Must keep you busy churning out the reviews. Or does Tim write them for you. I guess that pays well. It screams "avaoid this book" when an author needs to pump up his ratings so often. Get a job that requires at least an ounce of integrity. OK?

Sorry, think what you want, I'm not a shill for Timothy Hallinan. I *DO* have a job that requires an ounce of integrity (I run my own software business). Perhaps YOU should try reading his books and form your own opinion, rather than just being an anti-review troll? You may not like them, but I and plenty of others do. He doesn't churn out novels that are cookie-cutter entries in a series, with cardboard characters. You can't help but care about the characters in his novels.
