I didn't mention in that review but I will in this one, the quick leap to a happy ever after ending takes away from the story, from any story. Endings, like dialogue, are not easy for an author but they must be worked carefully and set up properly so they do not damage the story but rather enrich it. Happy ever after is fine, but it must be staged correctly or it really doesn't work. He would be well advised to rewrite the ending of this book as well as the ending of Justice Rendered.
He is apparently working on his third book now. My hope is that he has learned more and that we don't see the same "telling" the story instead of "showing", that the dialogue has improved, and other points made in the review of Justice, and that the next book is professionally edited before it is released. All things considered, this new author has unlimited potential and we can wish him the best in his writing career.
x-Very goofy plot that was full of holes.
x-Our "heroine" had all the likeability of a very spoiled and dim-witted child. Way too many stupid actions and too much child-like dialogue.
x-Far too many characters for me, between the Mexican gangs, the FBI and the main characters, I gave up giving a damn about any of them.
x-The "Spanglish" became very annoying very quickly
x-Long winded and repetitive
I'm going to read part three, Touch of Corruption, because I paid the .99 for it, but judging from the reviews, it looks to be as bad as this one.
Good read for those who are interested in illegal, money hungry people in the world. Willing t carve someone up and sell their body parts.
