Jimmy Veeder and Bobby Maves ride again Oh how I love these two characters Off they go again on yet another badly planned and poorly organised Mavescapade you have to read the books to find out I say poorly organised as their willingness to use extreme violence is always therealong with Bobbys usual bag of weapons I will not give away the story line at all except to say that this second book featuring these two heroes looks like it may be the last one,I hasten to add not because of either one of them meeting an untimely end This book, like the authors other two yarns is very very funny,with sad moments and parts of extreme violence I absolutely loved it Please Johnny Shaw write another Mavescapade Second Jimmy Vedder fiasco, read the first then read this, fast paced, funny, violent, believable characters Think Tarrentino on the Mexican border Away to start the third fiasco, hope there s a fourth. Enjoyed this, but not quite as much as Johnny Shaw s previous novel Dove Season This is a standard mission caper story in the mould of Lansdale s Hap and Leonard books, whereas Dove Season was a rollercoaster ride of drama, comedy, emotion and even romance But still, an enjoyable read, and Johnny Shaw is a writer to watch. I am still reading this book, almost finished It s so funny it is like a keystone cops movie, I m really enjoying it As I recall this author s last book was just as funny I would always recommend his books to anyone,as long as the language is not an issue for them. Great story told at a great pace with all the familiar Jimmy Veeder humour A very good page turner Good balance between human interaction and just action Great fun. Decent credible plot, loveable main characters and crisp , entertaining writing style A good find for an avid reader of action crime books This is a writer that I will follow. Jimmy Veeder and Bobby Maves are back at it, two years after the events of Dove Season they re not exactly the luckiest guys in the Imperial Valley, but, hey, they win fights than they lose Settled on his own farmland and living like a true family man after years of irresponsible fun, Jimmy s got a straight life cut out for him But he s knocking years off that life thanks to fun yet dangerous Bobby s booze addled antics especially now that Bobby is single, volatile as ever, and bored as hell When Bobby s teenage daughter goes missing, he and Jimmy take off on a misadventure that starts out as merely unfortunate and escalates to downright calamitous Bobby won t hesitate to kick a hornets nest to get the girl to safety, but when the rescue mission goes riotously sideways, the duo s grit and loyalty to each other is put to the test I love these books, I can picture the scenery and landscape, the farms and morales bar It s funny but not silly, thrilling but not unbelievable I d love to be involved in one of the mavescapades. This story moved along quickly and kept my attention all the way to the end The characters are definitely well developed, and each of the main characters grows visibly with the actionlearns life lesson, painlessly for the reader, but not so painless for the characters Although the language is a little raw, it is only used to define the speaker or the habits of this particular region s inhabitants The Mexican touch is matter of fact and seems authentic.The one thing that bothered me was the endingthe story didn t seem to end smoothly but plunged to its conclusion, then meandered on into life after the BIG EVENT However, getting to the end was so entertaining that I didn t even mind I wouldn t even have mentioned it except we are asked to provide something that bothered us about the book in our review.I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes well plotted action stories with likable, believable characters and who doesn t mind a little rough language and violence. Always a fun trip with the indestructible Veeder and Maves Not quite as good as the Big Maria or Dove season but great value for the price keep writing Johnny Shaw
