A COP. A VERY DANGEROUS COP,
This review is from: The Wowzer (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was intrigued by a story that introduces itself as one part Dexter, Dexter : Complete Season 1 [DVD], one part Southern gothic, with a dash of psychosis for good measure! The title itself was also intriguing, Wowzer. A Wowzer being a giant creature of the woods that decapitates it's victims. So I was ready to be thrown into the deep end of a story that could go anywhere.
To be honest there is not much similarity with Dexter as Jerry is more of a lethal thug enforcer to ensure the local drug traders remain king of the hill. Jerry is a likeable guy, but he is a cop. A cop that abuses his power for personal gain. Maybe this is how society works these days as everybody seems to be out for themselves, make a huge wedge, and then sail off into the sunset. Never mind the bloodshed or chaos left behind. But Jerry is not going to retire if his boss has his own way...
Jerry is also in love. But his girlfriend is being drawn into the crossfire, and she has misgivings about Jerry. Will Jerry be able to hold onto his girl?
I liked the story. Some twists and turns. Recommended for those who want to read something different than the usual.
