    Interesting characterisation, but a little too American for my taste that is, you HAVE to know a great deal about the Americanisation of various similies, which I found a distraction in trying to liken to British ones Otherwise, a different take on life in a hick town in the south of America borderland with what I perceive as red necks out on the razz, spoiling for a fight The main character was as confused about how he should be behaving as I was That is not to say that I didn t enjoy reading something a little out of the ordinary though Not quite what I was expecting, but a good quick read.

    I ve had this book on my kindle foe a few years perhaps I got it free or maybe for 0 99 in book of the day I have bypassed it many time in favour of others because I for some reason thought it was about hunting.It is, in fact, a really human story about relationships, loyalties conscience I enjoyed the first half a little bit than the second don t want a spoiler so won t say why.

    After reading the Big Maria I was really happy to see Johnny Shaw had written another book I now know Dove Season chronologically came first but are unrelated story wise I thought this story was on an equal par for both laugh out moments and there were times it brought a tear to my eye The two main characters, the way they interracted together you would really believe they had known each other all their lives.If you have never read Johnny Shaw on the back of the two books mentioned you need to check him out I promise you will enjoy his work.

    This is an unusual genre for me to read but I really liked this book I read it whilst on holiday and it was perfect holiday reading I liked the colourful characters a decent, hard nosed bunch who liked their booze, hung out in seedy bars and were somewhat dodgy.The novel is set on the USA Mexico border and the reader instantly becomes hooked when a dying man asks his son to locate a prostitute and bring her to him It is a novel of murder,theft, and kidnapping A deadly cocktail to keep the reader engrossed.At such a cheap download price give it a try.

    I really enjoyed this book because it gave the feel of the area around the US Mexican border the hardship and poverty This didn t slow the story down and it never blamed any country or people for the dog eat dog lifestyle The characters were real and the men saw violence as a natural way of life The women were thoughtful which balanced the equation Yes there was a lot of bad language but it seemed appropriate but I will be very surprised if it would appeal to a woman reader that is NOT a sexist comment If you like a thoughtful adventure and an unusual story then this is for you.

    I read some of the reviews before downloading this book, although I had previously read Big Maria another book by the author Negative feedback is always going to be there, from the same people who probably love The girl with the Dragon tattoo series which I started but couldn t finish so if you like the look of this book try it because I bloody loved it Thanks Johnny

    After reading Big Maria I thought I would try Johnny Shaws other bookand am I pleased that I did I shall not reiterate the story line as it is outlined in the product page.This book is funny,sad and pretty damned action packed,I loved it,I loved it so much that I have ordered the sequel Plaster City I love the fact that the characters have their their weaknesses and their strengths all on view A great story with great Characters makes a great read

    So, this Jimmy Feeder book starts with an educated wanderer returning home because his fathers dying However, when he meets his father in hospital, he asks Jimmy to find someone for him I won t spoil it by telling you who, but that s when the story changes The book is full of twists and some very funny and well written characters I would thoroughly recommend this well written book.

    My second Johnny Shaw book and I still can t get over the masterful way that he blends his wonderful dialogue with characters that perfectly match the written words Mr Shaw is a gem of a writer Great stories, engaging characters, snappy repartee, I regret that it took me so long to find him, but I will make up for it.

    Ich hab das Buch als Kindle Deal gekauft es war eine sehr gute Wahl Das Buch hat mich gefesselt die Geschichte nimmt immer wieder unerwartete Wendungen, und die Charaktere sind sehr interessant vielschichtig Das Verwischen der Grenzen zwischen gut Freundschaft, Treue, Liebe, Ehre und b se Gewalt, Alkoholismus, berufliche Versager , Prostitution in den Charakteren fand ich faszinierend Auch das ungew hnliche Setting des Buches mit einer eigentlich trostlosen Stadt an der Grenze zu Mexico tr gt viel zum Reiz des Buches bei.Ich werde mir definitiv auch andere B cher vom Autor ansehen
