It's not subtle, nor is it meant to be - my take on it was that it was an author having some over-the-top fun with the conventions of the action-adventure genre. Most of the adult content - there's one scene with a henchmen and a finger used as a weapon that stands out in particular - is played mostly for laughs.
The book ends with a cliffhanger that will have fans of this book reaching for the next one in the series.
The voodoo mysticism of New Orleans comes out enough to make you wonder what is fact and what is fiction. Ex-Marine Knight, a one man wrecking crew, is a holy terror even with hands behind his back. Put a gun in his hands and he begins his own method of population control.
Mr. Kessler provides a lot of military technology to advance the action-that once started-keeps you turning pages. As in Knight's Ransom, unique names abound, Poodoo, Rabbit, Smoky, Beautiful, etc.
I have to put my order in for the next one in the series, coming out this fall.
Trouble seems to follow E Z. During the initial meeting with Tamara, the parole officer and a detective are fired upon, unleashing a cascade of events which entangle E Z in a nefarious scheme that leads him to New Orleans during the Mardi Gras festivities. Tamara's son Billy, a Marine Lance Corporal, is AWOL and his life is in danger, prompting his mother to grant E Z permission to travel to the Big Easy in an effort to rescue him and uncover whatever conspiracy is underway.
The wild antics of Mardi Gras cannot compare to the situation in which E Z soon finds himself, however. Amidst human trafficking, voodoo, hoodoo, and corrupt law enforcement personnel, E Z lives up to his paladin namesake as he targets one villain after another, remarking that "They didn't call me `The Mule' in the Marines for just the one reason!" With the help of a cast of colorful characters, including Black Zack and Poodoo, E Z attempts to bring justice to the swamplands of Louisiana, but when he comes under the power of a voodoo spell, nothing is certain, and the line between reality and hallucination becomes blurred.
"Knight's Big Easy" contains frequent adult language and content which some readers may find offensive. There is plenty of violence, some of which is briefly graphic, and the text is heavily interwoven with humorous double entendres, beginning with the play on the title character's name. The story is an easy and quick read, with comical titles given to each of the short chapters, and the first-person narration by E Z lends a realistic, matter-of-fact tone to the novella. That being said, this story is best suited for a mature audience who appreciates adult humor and fast-paced drama. Although I would normally not read a story of this type, I was surprised to find it interesting and funny; I did not think that it was excessively vulgar, and although it did have crude moments, Kessler proficiently maintained an amusing and rollicking tone throughout the story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
EZ Knight wakes to find himself handcuffed to a strange bed, in a strange room, with a strange bedfellow - and one hot woman with a gun strapped to her thigh. But he doesn't remember who she is or how he got there.
Remembering alongside EZ is the biggest adventure you'll ever have with a man. Meet endearing Black Zack, Poodoo, a heroic Marine named Billy White Cloud, and the whole gang waiting for him back at Smokey's Marina to see how it all started. Get ready for enormous belly laughs, children trapped by evil people for their own evil purposes that will make you madder than...well, it will just make you spit nails, and shed some tears for the souls lost.
You've hit another one out of the ballpark, Mr. Kessler!
Gordon Kessler has created a collection of endearing realistic characters, while the action and situations may push the envelope of credulity they never quite do and are well written. This is the second of the Knight Reports I've read, Knight's Late Train now Knight's Big Easy, I've read them in reverse order. While not ideal the tales certainly did not suffer from it. So which ever you run across, pick it up it's worth reading.
