4.0 out of 5 stars Intense 10 April 2013
By Steven R. McEvoy TOP 1000 REVIEWER
This short story is like a cross between Chuck Palahniuk and Douglas Coupland and Irvine Walsh! This story is quick, dark and gritty. Viper is crazy, and the narrator does not even know his real name, but calls him a friend, with a biker gang called the Rumble Fish and the small town of Bosco. The story begins with:

"Viper's eyes are gun metal blue.
That's the coolest thing about him. The way he stares down anyone who steps in his way.
Waiting for you to flinch, to hesitate.
Then he's on you.
Bye, bye."

Viper is described as being made of bruises, leather and spit, kind of like a living crocodile or snake. And he is the toughest SOB you will meet.

This was a very entertaining short story. The edge with which it is written shows a new, more intense side of the author. Check it out. I am sure if you like Palahniuk, Coupland or Walsh you will definitely enjoy this offering and if we are lucky, Stephen Shea will be releasing more and longer books for us to devour!
