I got this one as a First Reads Giveaway, and I am sorry it took so long for me to get around to reading it.

Rife with misogyny, misdirected racism, and a truckload of left-handed bigotry, this trio of stories is also atmospheric, dark, and written in near lyrical language. The characters, especially Rene Shade, are memorable and interesting. You just know something is going to happen when the Shade brothers are in the mix -- and they are always in the mix.

This is a good read.
