I read slob ages ago and at that point read a couple of other Rex Miller books after it...however over two decades have passed and it's only now I have caught up with this author again.
I found this book alongside a copy of slob(which I may return to purchase to) at a charity shop and bought a couple of the books, I had memory of the books being fairly Gore driven and comic book in some ways but still a good read..this book bore that out but also reminded me all told they are pretty well written.

While I found the gratuitous violence aborhing, I was drawn to the story by the wonderful use of language, the excellent pace of the narrative, and the brilliant mind of the anti-hero. Sometimes to pick a rose, you have to walk in a garden of manure.

Mediocre Rex Miller is better than no Rex Miller, and since this author died too young and wrote too few books, I'll take his going back to the Chaingang serial-killer well and miss what was and could have been. Which says next to nothing about the quality of the book, but so be it.
