Entertaining, Informative...can't put it down mystery
on July 25, 2012
I bought Hell or High Water because it was set in New Orleans, and was not dissappointed. I live in New Orleans, and the book was accurate on most details. (Most people here, say Baby, not darling. Even this old lady has been called "baby" by many a restaurant worker.) The story starts with an abduction, and I thought this was going to be the main thrust of the story, a detective searching for the perp, but the story takes a quick turn toward Nola, a writer for the Times Picayune. The book was fufilling on many levels, well written, a good mystery, characters with depth, and well researched info on sexual predators and the effect their actions have on their victims. This book was hard to set aside, and I finished it after several days of reading at 2 a.m. Thank heaven for Ipads that let me read without disturbing him.
