Aside from a little story about an earthquake that I just didn't get, I though this book was absolutely superb. The first story, called "Runaway Horses" (I think) had more action and insight than most 500-page novels. One reviewer said that Blake loves violence. I think the opposite is true. I believe he abhors it, and that's why he writes about it with such passion. This isn't like a sugar-coated news story. Instead, it's blood and guts and heartbreak and every emotion that goes with tragedy. It's like reading Cormac McCarthy after a careful editing by John Steinbeck to make every sentence glass smooth. A+++++

superb, intense, grabs you and doesn't let you go.

As with many others of his works, the location is the same, the rough, lawless, "outback" between Mexico and the USA, and those that make there living therein.
