Beaird Gloverabout this book: Syd and Marcy don't mean to be bad. But Marcy has been disrespected for too long. Sydney says, "You look too good, you know? They see a sexy woman and that's all they see." "They should see the gun," she says. But the detective does see the gun, and the wild kids behind it. At first he just wants to catch killers, but as they elude him, his methods become unsound. He would rather break them or dispense with them himself, than give the justice system a chance to fail him.
A reviewer on Amazon said, "I was amazed with all the twists and turns of all the characters! As soon as you get emotionally involved with one, the author turns your opinion in another direction!"
This novel is an adventure and a dark comedy, a crime story that reads like watching a movie, and if it were a movie, it would be somewhere between Wild at Heart and Natural Born Killers.
