In Atlanta Bones, by Ken McKea, we get a very interesting character, Jim Dallas, an ex-cop who is recovering from a physically and mentally traumatic event that left him with scars both on the inside and outside. We get his back-story in bits and pieces along the way instead of a huge info-dump at the beginning.
This is good. This is how we learn about our friends in the real world. This is the way it should be in all novels. When Dallas gets into trouble - and he does get into some very serious trouble - we worry about him. And by the time we get to the end of the book, we feel that we really know Jim Dallas. We want him to solve the case because we really like him, as a friend.
That is good writing.
Atlanta Bones has many other examples of good writing. If you've ever spent any time in Florida, especially along the Gulf Coast, you will be able to smell the salt air, feel the sand between your toes, the sweat on your skin, the sometimes oppressive heat as you walk from your car across the parking lot to your favorite restaurant, and the ever-present mosquitoes buzzing and biting each exposed patch of skin.
Dallas has a friend who is part Seminole Indian that helps him along the way, the kind of guy you would really like to know and have on your side.Read more ›
Without revealing too much of the story this is a super read and has me hunting for more from the author.

I don't care for the Jim Dallas books because everything seems too scripted. The conversations aren't "spoken," they are "written" with careful thought ... Read morePublished 11 months ago by P. G. Mollica
