By James Rudolph
I was so captivated by James Rudolph¡¯s crime fiction novel Henry & Dad that I read it in one day. For Mr. Rudoph has spun a fast-paced tale of shit-kicking, hard drinking, hard loving, all American bonhomie, al¨¢ James Ellroy, who are pitted against mobsters out to do them in. Henry, ¡°24, good looking in a beat-up cowboy hat,¡± has issues with but loves Dad to death. Dad is an inveterate alcoholic and womanizer, who neglected Henry when he was growing, just as he neglected everything else. When his uncle Teddy¡¯s cement business runs afoul of the law because he used low-grade sand for its cement and thus precipitated the collapse of a bridge, the mobsters, who have a finger in his business, come after Teddy (and Sarah, Henry¡¯s love who is also Teddy¡¯s accountant.) Unfortunately, they get to Teddy before Henry and Dad can save him. The torture of his brother unleashes in Dad a need for revenge that is equally nasty. Imagine, a mobster¡¯s convertible full of cement¨Dan image worthy of the best writers of this genre¡
I loved this book. My only regret was I found Dad¡¯s revenge over the top, tarnishing the image of a character of whom I was fond. If you want to immerse yourself in total enjoyment, you¡¯ve got to read this book! Three cheers for James Rudolph!
