The series revolves around Jack Lamburt. Jack's a small town sheriff, an ex-husband, dating an insanely hot bartender, and has a very dark secret but he's not the only one with a secret.
A tale of a small town sheriff going through life enjoying the small town life and dealing with all the small town crime, drinking at the local and only bar while watching his on again off again girlfriend flirt with the locals. That's his public life, his secret life is much more thrilling and dangerous, that is until his watering hole gets a few visitors from the big NYC of the Italian variety. Most local small town sheriffs might have been concerned but not Jack. Jack just happens to know something about one of his visitors and can't believe his luck.
In Jack's secret life he has access to unimaginable amounts of data. Not just data on criminals but everyone. The data he has on this crew indicates that one of them has been a very bad boy but his connections, ruthlessness, and money have kept him from doing any real time. It's unfortunate that he chose to stop in this town as his luck is just about to turn.
Overall I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading the next book in the series although, I'm hoping that it's a new storyline but the way this ends indicates that's not the case which, could be the end of the series for me. In this genre, I'm not a fan of a singular plotline spanning multiple books.
There were a few annoyances throughout the story. Some of the comedy delivered by Jack in the form of internal dialog just didn't seem to work. The bad guys are given nicknames at the start of the book but once we find out that Jack knows them it takes many chapters until we get an actual name and then only one first name. I even went back through the story and never found the last name. It's not really a big deal but it's just odd.
The biggest one for me was something that happens at the end of the story. There's a bombshell of sorts dropped but there's nothing mentioned and it's almost like it never happened. I assume that it will be explored more in the next book but there was enough story after the event that I finished the book unbelieving that nothing was said.
These things really aren't a big deal and I would recommend it to fans of the genre. It's the first book for a new author and I have high hopes for both the author and the character.
When three NYC mobsters show up in his quiet town, things get real, real fast. As the three 'wise guys' stop in for drinks at the Red Barn, the town's best watering hole, they're like fish out of water when learning how to deal with small town attitudes. Their boss takes offense when the cute waitress rebuffs his 'hands on' approach to being New York Cool.
This sets into motion a violent, albeit funny, interaction between the hoods and Sheriff Jack. Jack Lamburt isn't just a simple small town Sheriff though. His background as a government operator spells trouble for the mob boys.
Meet Mary, Debbie, London and old Frances as this first person narrative tracks the hapless mobsters through their misguided misadventures in small town New York. Watch out for the 200 year old well! The first step is a doozie!
The characters in this story pop off the pages so well that you feel like a witness to these events rather than just reading about them. You'll be able to vividly picture each and every scene as they unfold. I like Etzil's style very much.
I quite enjoyed this story. I make it sound like a comedy, but it's anything but. I have to admire the author's style as he add his own humorous style to Sheriff Jack's mental musings. The dark humor that law enforcement officers share is prevalent throughout this book. I found myself laughing out loud several times during this read.
If you like humor and crime drama, an odd mix to be sure, you'll enjoy Fatal Justice.
The author gave Jack a snarky disposition and his comments will invite snickers from readers. There are twists and turns, actions that don't go according to plan, and a flirty bartender who flaunts and teases everyone she encounters. She promises Jack a fulfilling night - something he's looking forward to...providing he lives through the night.
Not a bad start to a new series - I'll check out the next installment when it's available.
John Podlaski, author
"Cherries - A Vietnam War Novel" and "When Can I Stop Running?"
I'd recommend this author to anyone that likes a fast paced, action filled ride through upper NY States!
Some of the plotting is somwhat far-fetched and it has a taste of a 'western' about it.
Some curious humor adds to the ambience.
A light/quick read.
