Dead Money Run is an odd book. It is written from the point of view of a convicted robber, Lou Malloy. He gets out of jail and wants his stashed money. He also wants to find out who tortured and then killed his sister. He doesn’t mind performing some torture of his own trying to get the information that he needs. Lou Malloy says that he only kills the people who deserve it, but that stack of bodies gets pretty large.

Dead Money Run feels like a comic book. The characters are what you would expect to find in one of those unrated crime comics. None of them feel real, they are one-dimensional. The story is the same. It’s fun and exciting, but not very realistic. So does that make Dead Money Run a bad book? No, not at all. Just be aware of the fact that this is a bit over-the top, and that you won’t disappointed. Everyone needs a little flat-out escapism once in a while.

I give Dead Money Run 3 Stars out of 5. It’s not bad, but it isn’t great either. If you see it on Amazon for cheap, grab it for a few hours of fun.

I received an eBook from the publisher.
