I was drawn to this novel because of the title, and the setting and I stayed for Reddick. The story is grittier than I normally like, but there’s just something about him I find attractive. His character is realistic and engaging, and entertaining – and I give him extra points for liking country music. The references to Eddie Rabbit and Jimmy Buffet make him seem even more real. The depiction of office politics and inter-agency squabbles is right on. There’s a lot of action, a light touch of romance, and a satisfying ending.
I enjoyed the author’s writing style. About dancing, the author writes “Robert and his wife had even been trying to teach us to tango, but teaching T.A. Reddick to dance is like teaching yoga to a brick. It’s not pretty and it’s not gonna work.” Reddick, describing a kiss, thinks, “She tasted like the cool water that rushes past stones in an Appalachian stream. It was a kiss that might have been talked about in the heavens, a kiss that would never let me go.” Tough and romantic.
This appears to be a stand-alone, but I hope it turns into a series. I connected with Reddick and I’d sure like to know how his life goes. I think I will explore more by this author.
My favorite part was the last fight between T.A. and Tux. I'm not going to give it away, but let's just say that T.A. is a bit more real life than your typical tough guy characters. The side order of jazz with the main course made this a very entertaining book indeed.
Given the shifts of T.A's moods the novel also failed to stay on track One moment we are hunting bad guys, the next pining over a woman, the next fuming over a slight... One reviewer accused the novel of too many sex scenes - that was blatantly unfair given that there really weren't any. But fighting - all over the page multiple times.
The author might get some help with grammar. E.g.: Taught and taut are not spelled the same.
I hope to find more books by this author.
This book had all the elements of a good mystery/suspense novel in the right proportions.
Walker dropped the realism ball one place. Riddick gets the crap beaten out of him – punched, kicked, and pistol-whipped – to the point where he is nearly unconscious with several broken ribs and a busted nose in Chapter 37. Four chapters later, he’s chasing the bad guy through a muddy marsh in the middle of a hurricane. Um, no.
Riddick does a little too much introspection for my taste and the ending was just a touch too pat (and cute) but Walker’s overall storytelling ability makes up for it.
Those two little quibbles aside, Walker did keep the book rolling along right to the end.
