TAKE NOTICE. There is a warning about graphic violence and crude language throughout the book. They are not kidding when they say that. This is a very gritty book, where some of the baddies are a little less bad, and occasionally treat the bystanders with a little respect.
The Stanton Brothers have a notorious reputation in the area where this takes place; they cause most other hoodlums to at least think twice before going up against them. The brothers also have another little idiosyncrasy - they like to steal from other gangsters, and rough them up in the process.
In this case, the ones in danger of losing their loot call in what are known as "bone breakers". These are ultra-tough, hugely-built guys (also a family, in this case) who have no compassion for anyone or anything. It's all in the money for them. This story is largely about the Stanton Brothers and a couple of their allies going up against these bone-breakers.
One area that rather bothered me was the attempt by the author to give some of the crooks a strange British/Irish kind of slang, with the strange spelling of things included. It became a bit of a distraction, because sometimes it was hard to know what someone said. However, that is only a partial mark-down of the rating, since not everyone read like that.
This book is a basic "beat the stuffing out of the other guy" kind of tale. It is not cerebral, deep, or challenging. But if you like an occasional crime story, this book should satisfy your itch.
Everything you expect in a Stanton Bros. thriller is here -- violence and raunch at the top of the list. But where I think the story really excels is in the bickering among characters. It is truly very funny and reminds me of the great old sitcom "All in the Family."
