This is good writing. There are moments in the story where I have issues with suspension of disbelief, but overall this is quite brilliant. I like the give-and-take between the characters, and Cookie's back story is delivered deftly. Readers find out much in a very little space: You have a rich economy of words.
Well drawn characters make this a pleasant read. Bobby Lee is a nice place to start, and characters like Bulldog and Casper make me want to read this more than once. Take a chance on this book. You won't be disappointed.
I've enjoyed your short stories and how women lead in all things. The only thing that puts me off are the names Ghaavn and Bulays. Those names are so far out of my own realm, that I stumble over them each time I read. Yet I do read, again and again. Thanks for making these available.
