I suppose this qualifies as Noir. I'm sure I've read it before and now it's back. The story's plot is okay and the main character is bigger than life. But somehow it just doesn't come together for me. I got tired of the bum like main character and never felt a bond to him.

Wow!!! The story gave me chills, made me chuckle and brought back memories of my years reading Andrew Vachss, watching "Apocalypse Now" and listening to "In The Ghetto". "Retribution" is an example of exceptional storytelling. The style is gritty and fast-paced. Characters are engrossing, with McDougal leading the squad with guns blazing. I saw, heard, felt and smelt this tale and have to say the author's ability to precisely portray portions of downtown L.A. had me missing my drives to the Criminal Courts building during the riots.
