it was amazing
bookshelves: new-fangled-e-reader, net-galley

Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review.

I hit pay dirt with this one.  It's as dark, dirty, and gritty as it needs to be for the story it tells.  Caney Fork, Tennessee.  Here is a place where you carry your own, and where you got to pay what you owe, in a manner of speaking.  

Do not trespass.  Do not poach.  And for the sake of all that is holy, do not pull the trigger unless you know for certain sure what you are aiming at. Think about what you have to lose, and weigh it against what is to be gained.  And know that there are some mistakes that are unforgivable.    

Meet the Brewer boys.  Dwayne is a mountain of a man, glowering and formidable, an avid reader of the Bible, slightly insane.  Carol, nickname of Sissy, is the younger brother, dimwitted, born with a purple birthmark that covers half his face.  He never had a chance.

I understand your feelings about that, Angela. Sometimes I have to wonder about my abnormally thick skin and strong stomach.

Thanks so much, Cheri. This guy has grittiness down to a fine art.
