There were also parts that had me laughing, usually from Stan's witty reflections. "The sober part of me shouted Stanley, you are a boob!" Not to mention, I learned plenty of new vocabulary: hirsute! veldt! middens! tuckpointing! cordite!
I finished this book over a long weekend, because Stan is a compelling and endearing character (despite his terrible dark side) and that makes the reader want to see how he makes out. A very worthwhile read, and I look forward to whatever Holt publishes next.
I read this book in three days – what’s not to like about an interesting story, intriguing characters, descriptive, bone-chilling settings, and hilarious dialogue? Oh, and diamonds. Lots of diamonds.
If you are looking for a book that will defy categorization, make you laugh—loudly—out loud, will chew up and spit out any preconceived idea you had of [take your pick: the Congo, ex-military, 1st-person narrative, bad guys, good guys], then this is your book. I look forward to reading the sequel (and there’d better be a sequel!).
Hard Dog to Kill is about Stan and Frank, two mercenaries who are sent into the Congo jungle to hunt down and kill a man who has wronged their boss. Along the way, Stan begins to question his own morality, trying to convince himself that despite all of his bad deeds, he’s the good guy. Even with Stan’s brutal history, I was drawn to his sharp intellect and black humor.
Craig Holt is a master storyteller, painting a vivid picture of one of the most remote parts of Africa. Hard Dog to Kill is gritty and insightful yet also darkly funny. I found myself laughing and cringing in suspense in equal measure.
This is the kind of book that warrants multiple readings, with lush settings and incredibly deep and complex characters. Highly recommended!
I hope there is a sequel in store for this character.
