This review is from: Wayne's Dead (Paperback)
I read this author's first book and liked it, so purchased her second. I wasn't expecting this. "Chasing Horses" has zany characters and dialogue and is funny and more than a little bawdy, while "Wayne's Dead" is on the other end of the spectrum -dealing with mental disease and a brutal serial killer. Although it was hard reconciling the same person wrote both books, I loved them both.
The characters in "Wayne's Dead" are more intense and dark and dwell among a world we're all glad not to be part of. As a social worker, I was glad to see the author did her homework with DID and portrayed it realistically.
The book is a quick read - you don't get a chance to breathe hardly - and there is no extraneous verbiage or descriptions given. I liked that - kind of like a darker Elmore Leonard.
Great second book and I look forward to seeing more from this author.
