The prose in this book is on a whole higher lever than usual. So clear, so crisp, so descriptive that I felt I was actually there, present in the woods with the leaves crinkling underneath my feet; kneeling down with Sean in front of the trucker inside the rest room stall, enjoying the fruits of my pursuits; feeling the angst in my heart over my long left behind high school love now sitting next to me, longingly looking into my eyes as we sit in that greasy, southern diner.
This book is about Southern men, alpha A-types used to getting what they want. Brought up in the genteel, hypocritical, backwoods South. The local Sheriff who was the star high school jock. The gorgeous FBI agent, used to getting whatever, and whoever, he wants - hooked on that juicy, sweet tea flavored taste of evil he gets from his prey. The closeted high school coach that browbeats his way to get that young, hung, unsure gay kid - all of it hidden behind that southern polite veneer.
This isn't a sweet, pretty M/M romance novel. Don't mistake it for that. It's a story of real southern gay men, how things really work, how they really cruise, how they really have sex, how their lives are shaped by the hypocrisy and religiosity of the area, brought up to modern times. It is a book of very well developed characters, of no holds barred real men, real situations and real outcomes.
I look forward to reading more Allen Renfro.
I think anyone who reads much knew who the killer was pretty early on, but it doesn't matter so much as how the story is told. It's an enjoyable read. Though it's not without it's problems.
Some of the things Sean says or does I never understood what he was doing or talking about. The non-stop horndogging was overdone. But the biggest problem for me was Sean's over inflated ego. He's always in control. He knows how to work men. He was the best looking thing anyone had ever seen. All the men and women want him.(which, for the story, they do). If he had been taken down a peg or two, it would have helped the feel of the story so much, but it didn't happen.
I didn't particularly care for the ending, but, I guess for the characters to stay true, it had to end the way it did.
The plus side: the writer pretty much nails small southern town life for gays, and people in general.
Oh, and there really is a Decatur, MS, just not in the part of the state the author puts it in.
