This is an exciting roller coaster of a thriller ride, which gripped me from the first few pages and I couldn't put down.
We have an interesting group of characters with a likeable hero in Jack Sloan and baddies that aren't always bad. The characters have depth and the writing is high quality. I particularly liked the scenes with Mattie who has no compunction about one minute having sex with men or women and the next minute killing them.
The author introduces several strands to the story and then

This gripping crime thriller is told in the first-person of the main character, casino businessman and tough guy Jack Sloan, and alternates with third-person accounts from other characters who play key roles in the story. Author Larry Seeley intrigues us with a colorful cast of scheming personalities and weaves their interactions with skill as he drives the major plot and subplots of the novel forward.

The dialogue is crisp, the characters are cold and calculating for the most part (after all, we

I was recently asked if I would be interested in reading/reviewing “The Bridge of the Americas: A Jack Sloan Novel” by author, Larry Seeley. I found the book’s title to be unusual, and after reading the synopsis, I realized I was very familiar with this bridge. I just never knew what its actual name was. I lived in Phoenix, Arizona for many years so, every time I did a road trip and passed through El Paso, I would see this bridge. That fact, coupled with the “about” blurb, intrigued me, and I ...more

I received this book through a First Reads Goodreads giveaway.

I think it's important to state that I have not read any of the other books in the trilogy and therefore my review should be read in this context.

Spoilers will be in my review below.

Jack Sloan gets an invite to act as a consultant on a new casino on Native American tribal land. Quickly it becomes clear the deal is murky and a tale of bribery, corruption and murder develops.

Most of the major players in the novel are of dubious charact

This is an action packed book that is really fast paced. Not many slow spots in this one and the mostly short chapters make it really easy to read. Cover says it is the third book in a trilogy, but it "stood alone" very well. I didn't feel lost at all.
I received this book for free, but I am not really sure where it came from. Maybe direct from the author?
Now here is a little spoiler below so stop here if you don't want to know:











Two of the bad guys get away at the end. I hope Mattie shows up in a

This was a good book with an easy to follow story line. The character build up was great, and I didn't need to read the prior books to understand the story. Overall a nice, easy read, both enjoyable and exciting.

Staggeringly good. Great adventure and protagonist. Inside details about the drug war and Mexican/American law enforcement. Well-written, rather in the style of Hemingway. I highly recommend this novel and its predecessors: Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves, and 17 Degrees North.
