Reviews of A New Prospect by Wayne Zurl

Great read. Intelligent but not intellectual. The main character is cool, normal. I don't want to "spoiler alert" but I like that everything is not perfect in the end. I could do without the attempts at transcribing strong accents but enjoyed it regardless

A halfway decent police procedural that takes place in a small southern town. New sheriff comes to town and…

Oh wait! That's from the standard western novel.

No, in this case a retired New York cop takes the job of police chief and is immediately faced with the first local murder since the Civil War. Or something. He doesn't solve it but that's okay.

Not bad writing except for two teensie-weensie items. First, far too much dialect, both Suthrun and N'yawk. Second… let me explain via an old joke.
Q: Why don't donkeys go to college?
A: Because nobody likes a smart burro.
