After the funeral: a discussion between the sherrif and the daughter of the deceased. Bad news "Daddy and his dog were both murdered. The daughter unloads the facts and denials about who was at the barbeque where daddy was poisoned. The daughter was daddy favorite child she tells us and she describes an altercation that occurred at the party. Her gay brother came to the party with a white guy and he came out with an announcment that he was comming out of the closet, and her father kicked him out but he came back to the party 3 times. Daddy started coughing and he fell out of his chair then everyone in the family started whirling, running and calling like coyotes for Jesus with misc details.
There were a lot of odd ball dysfunctional relatives at the party where they displayed their dysfunctions.
The sheriff appraises his small jail: "The gray paint on the walls was peeling, large flakes exposing white paint underneath . Cold air blew from the air conditioner, though it rattled noisily and had to be turned on with pliers. Duct tape held the cushion together in his chair. The other chairs were in poorer condition. Rust coated every bar on the one-man jail cell. Solve this case, he thought..."
Readable but not compelling. It reminded me of Family Thangs that most everybody has. There are some gross out topics (projectile vomit) some foul language but it did not dominate the beginning of the book. This book is readable but then There is pleanty of F'n and s**t in this book, so I put this book down and went on to the next thing, because I just hate having s**t in my face.
Shirley- Feisty and could be seen as the Rasputia of the family. Eric- Shirley's man, Broke pretty boy and the town's womanizer. Estafay- Holy roller with a face that besides Robert Earl, only a mother could love. Robert Earl- Where do I begin, married to Estafay, the oldest, dumbest and most scariest person in town, but oh man is he a riot! Shane- Seen as the slow one, but he actually has more sense than anybody in the family if you ask me. Leonard- The gay brother and somewhat the black sheep of the family. Lester- Ruth Ann's gullible, but decent and hard-working husband. Ruth Ann- beautiful, spoiled and low-down.
Sheriff Bledsoe- A gaseous hot mess of a sheriff who couldn't solve a tic-tac-toe puzzle if you showed him how. Kenny G- The beloved family dog poisoned by neck bones. Larry- The reason for the book, patriarch of the family poisoned by neck bones. Vincent- Leonard's lover. Ida- Matriarch of the family who will do anything to save her children regardless of the situation.
The only issues I had with the book was the ending. Not that it was a bad ending, but the way everything went down seemed incomplete for some reason. Plus, there seemed to be some confusion in the woods with Eric and his abductor. Ida's reason for doing what she did should've been elaborated on more in the beginning, if not the middle of the book. Plus, I would've loved some back stories that we're actually being told from Larry's point- of-view maybe at the beginning giving us a taste of who he was from the horse's mouth. Not saying that country folks can't be intelligent, but some of the dialect was off for the characters written.
Even though the book was tied up, I would still love to see these characters again. There's so many more stories to be told from them.
