The Following Review Is A Firstreads Winner Review:

The cover of this book bills it as a mystery. Well I don't know about that. Here is how this one starts: A repo guy go's out to collect a payment on a television set, ends up getting brained with a fireplace shovel and then has his car , that he borrowed, stolen. Now he sets out to locate said stolen vehicle, a calypso coral Ford Ranchero in mint condition. Now this book is set in the deep Delta country of Mississippi and is chock full of rednecks, meth heads, crooked cops and various reptiles. Mystery not so much. What I found this book to be was a damn hilarious, stumbling, bumbling adventure that continues to introduce more ridiculous characters as the book goes along. This was an advance edition and there were several grammatical errors that I hope are corrected before this one goes to print. My feelings are that Gavin has a winner on his hands and a very good possibility of a bright future as a writer should he continue to pursue this path.
