Ed is really cranking them out. He has another one or two coming up soon, as well. I thought that the first two chapters were somewhat stilted, as if he had hit Roget's Thesaurus to find fancy words to use--then the book seemed to settle into a more familiar pace. This book is about a jewel robbery, a woman doing time for it, and what happens when she gets out of prison--when four people want to get what they feel they deserve. What is a hooptie or hoopty? I guess that it might be a dilapidated car--possibly regional slang. Jonas Blades is an interesting character as are his two girl friends, Jackie Mantooth, and Rita Jo. Hogman and Mr. Buggs are almost laughable. Not a bad read--on Kindle, it is hard to tell how many pages it involves.
