For someone who doesn't read this kind of genre, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I pre-ordered the book because I had read "An Island Away" and wanted to read more from the same author. This book surprised me because it had a different style, but like Daniel Putkowski's other book, it also had great characters that were drawn very well. It made you want to know more about all of them, and it pulled you into the story which moved along swiftly. This author is a very talented and entertaining storyteller!
Basic plot of Bonk's Bar is Tom Bonk was on track to reach his dreams, he's in a good college and can see himself as a rich man in a few years after graduation. However his older brother and dad's clear favourite John is killed while serving in Iraq and his dad seems to have gone walkabout. Tom lives with his father above his father's bar and knows if he doesn't get down there and run it until his father returns they'll both loose everything. The bar's locals have always viewed Tom as a bit of a wuss, as did his father who was one day going to hand the bar over to John, but Tom knows he's got what it takes to turn the bar around. It soon becomes apparent how irresponsible his father was with the bar and it's employees. Even if John had returned he wasn't going to inherit anything but debt and problems. Tom also learns of the ridiculous interest his father is paying on his gambling debts to a mobster whose introduction was to punch him in the head.Read more ›

Daniel Putkowski is a hidden gem. I've read his other books, and this one is on par with them. A very good read. I only wish, Daniel would publish new books more frequently!Published 14 months ago by JO
This was entertaining but I missed the Aruba connection which I liked in his other books. I think this would appeal to men more than women.Published 22 months ago by Kindle Customer
