3.0 out of 5 stars
Disappointed after so many brilliant books, 16 Oct 2011
I've been an avid Don Winslow reader for about six years and have read just about all his books. I have to say I found The Gentlemens Hour simple, shallow, padded with too much surf speak with a fairly transparent finale. The romance angle between Boone Daniels and Petra Hall was also drawn out way too long. The book is so far adrift of The Power of the Dog or The Winter of Frankie Machine that I could believe they were written by different authors - I hope that this work is just a blip on an otherwise brilliant track and I look forward to Don's next effort.
