Gail Lancaster (gail5) | 7 comments I enjoyed the story but the travel directions on Hwy 99 were annoyingly incorrect. No one is going to take the Arvin exit on 99 and be immediately in Arvin, it's a good 10 miles down the road. You need to respect the geography and in support of the storyline, taking the Taft exit and stopping at the "nightclub" La Tormenta in Pumpkin Patch would have been more convincing and interesting. Other than that, John Shannon captured the flavor that is Bakersfield, paranoid conservative religiousity.

The Devils of Bakersfield: A Jack Liffey Mystery looks pretty intense. Too bad the author didn't take more care.
