In a year clogged by self-conscious genre stylists screaming and steaming overheated prose from every paragraph, Lynn Kostoff's third novel is a soft breeze on a warm beach, quite possibly in the slightly seedy South Carolina resort town that offers a backdrop to this drawling tale of greed, murder, manipulation and redemption. The crimes aren't original, but many of the characters are, thanks to sketches of surprising depth seamlessly supplied side-by-side with the action.
There's a beautiful woman who's used to making a living any way she can with her looks, who thinks she's more streetwise than she probably is. There's the contract criminal, an Asperger-ish assassin who doesn't "sex" and deals with stress by concocting convoluted rhymes in his head. There's the patrol cop, a former detective on another force, who constantly gets into political hot water by playing detective on the job.
And my favorite character of all is the cheerfully amoral lawyer of the kind one suspects can be found in any town -- an information broker who makes clear that you're expendable even as he's taking your money, and who you know probably won't wind up being any good for you, and who you can't help getting in bed with anyway because you can't think of any other way to go. Raychard Balen is the kind of sharp-eyed sociopath who soothes and unsettles you with every single syllable he speaks.Read more ›
After reading the product description, I thought this book was refreshing (and the free part as well). I mean come on. A guy in the late stages of Alzheimer's who can't portray his thoughts correctly is the only sole witness to a murder case? How would they interrogate him? How would he remember back the crime scene? Will his life be in jeopardy even though he can't identify the murderer? But no. Jack Carson, the "witness", doesn't play any major parts in solving the crime in Late Rain. If you read the product description like me and thought this would make for an interesting element for a story, you'll be disappointed in the end. I'm also laughing at the other review that said this book is packed with "sucker-punch surprises". Really? And what would those be? Because to me, I didn't find any shocker here even till the very end which I'm not even sure of what exactly happened.
One last thing I need to get off my chest about this book.Read more ›

Kept me interested till the end. Perhaps too much detail though. I prefer to to have a picture painted, not all the details drawn. I liked the way the events were scripted.Published on December 25, 2013 by kleckjd
