Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a story mainly about Jerry, a sheriff's deputy who uses extreme violence in pursuing his drug dealing and other criminal activities. He is without doubt an extreme psychopath.
When I started this book I found the attempt by the author to give a southern accent to the main character, Jerry, was very annoying. An extreme example would be "Nawlins" rather than "New Orleans". This did really spoil the book for me.
This dislike stayed with me for the entire book and was just about tolerated as the book developed. At this point the story was quite good with Jerry's relationships with his co- workers, partners in crime, acquaintances and most of all Maggie, the love of his life. This middle part the story fairly rattled along and was quite absorbing despite the excessive violence.
Unfortunately the ending was quite poor with even more over the top violence and death which all became a bit silly and this silliness was dragged out quite unnecessarily for quite a few pages.
Overall this book is just about a passable read for people not offended by both bad grammar and gratuitous violence.
