really liked it

John Sandford is such a guy's author- the language is coarse, the jokes are dirty, and the style of writing is very blunt- but I love him anyway. There's something so appealing about a protagonist who is as flawed as Lucas but who I find myself rooting for anyway. The great thing about these books is how the narrator lets us in on everything- there's really no "whodunit" aspect, in fact we usually know whodunit in the first 50 pages, but I am still glued to every page in anticipation. Every character- including the villains and the periphery casualties that I wouldn't normally care about in a crime novel- is three-dimensional and really well-developed.
The newest one hits Lucas pretty close to home when his wife Weather is a witness to a pharmacy robbery gone wrong at the hospital where she's a surgeon. It becomes clear that someone is desperately trying to eliminate witnesses- including Weather. If you know Lucas, you know how well that will go over.
