I found this book strange, yet intriguing. I admit that I found the slang used very unfamiliar, but that isn't why I didn't rate this book very high. Vic, the left for dead police office who's career is destroyed is bent on revenge, according to the jacket. That just didn't come through. I did for very sorry for Shay, the target of her mother's hate/love/self destruction, but she is really the only beleivable character I found in the book. i just wasn't impressed, but not bored enough to stop re...more

A great book for the dog days of summer. This book is a fever burning in the brain,racing speeding bullet fashion from intense,to crazy;with the occasional detour into dementia.

He may even have succeeded in inventing a few charcter types that can't be qualified. I don't promise that you'll like this book;it is aimed at a certain taste,but I do pro...more
I really enjoyed Mr. Teran's first novel, "God is a Bullet". He didn't have a sophmore let down with his second effort. This is pulp fiction at it's best.
Brilliantly engaging. Some don't like all the colourful language of this author - imagine Henry Miller gone all modern murder

Violent, gruesome, weird, all about the underbelly of the world. Not a happy book
Pulp fiction at its best but not what I would call a literary masterpiece.
Loved the book, hated the atrocious Kindle format.
Crazy good.
