Good but had such potential to be better
Like all of the Waterman novels, it may behoove the reader to jot down some notes as you go along because the author does little to remind the reader who the characters are as the story progresses. The murder victim is introduced and not mentioned again until he is killed about 100 pages later. I had to think hard about who this guy was and why it was important to the story that he was dead.
I would recommend reading the other Waterman books (Who In Hell is Wanda Fuca?, Cast in Stone, The Bum's Rush) before reading this one.
I give this book a "4 stars" out of 5 - fun but I'm struck by the unrealized potential.
This book can be found on Amazon.com here: Slow Burn.
