The book opens with a pulse pounding bank robbery gone wrong, and I mean seriously wrong. The scene reminds one of the "Shoot out at the OK Corral." It's wild and it's wooly. Poor Cole doesn't realize the absconded money has a die packet in it. Whoops. Despite being filled full of lead, his darling Bunny pulls him out of the fire and wings them off to safety. From this point on, their adventures are a reminder of "Road Runner versus Wiley Coyote." Why? Because some of the action scenes are a bit over the top. I forgot how many injuries Cole endures, but in each case, he wouldn't have survived without his surplus items from ACME Inc.
Now, no story would be complete without some resident stooges. Meet Bogart and Flathead. These two guys couldn't pour s..t out of their boots without written directions. They're that stupid. They have more schemes on how to make money than the law allows. Only problem, they're great ideas flounder when they start talking to each other. They are the atypical, "Laurel and Hardy" tandem. What idiots. Their endeavors will have you splitting a rib.
I did have a few issues. At times, the punch line was followed with another punch line. As already mentioned, the injuries the characters are inflicted with, would have killed them over and over and over. The ending.
Who will like this? Easy. If you are a Western, Bonnie and Clyde junkie, with a touch of slapstick, you're going to thoroughly enjoy the book.
A solid 4 stars.
Flathead and Bogart are two bumbling idiots who are trying to figure out how to smuggle drugs across the border without getting caught, hurt, shot down and killed. They try everything, always seemingly meeting up with disaster each and every time.
Hunstetter embezzeled six million dollars from the city. Now he's on the run. He's somehow managed to out run the law. But they're coming after him with full force.
What have these five in common? Oh, you'll have to read the book to find that out.
The author has a unique style of writing, sometimes making up his own words for things/objects/people...while sometimes overusing the thesaurus just a little...but the story is well worth having to look up a few words. The author's humour shines through with this piece. It was a fun read, one that will have you shaking your head in wonderment of how such people can even exist. You'll be chuckling along, tryng to figure out what their next move will be.
The story moves along nicely with no lulls in the humour or action. It grabbed me from the beginning.
Set in the Tex-Mex area, there are chuckles galore. 5 stars!
Cole and Bunny have been together for awhile. Their trusty friends Bogart and Flathead (aptly named) have possibly a gnat's brain between them with Flathead being the smart one. Bikers to the3 core and always on the lookout for a score; they help save friends through interesting inventions of Bogart's and assist a wanna-be embezzler out of town.
About the embezzler......well, you'll find out because you will NOT be able to resist buying this one. What a wonderful book, laughed my self silly!

Bailin' was way too choppy in my opinion. I was not very impressed with the characters. It was not one of my favorite reads.Published on October 19, 2013 by Katie M.
