But this time I did. It's a long, drawn out, boring story line. I've read everything Johnny Shaw has written and until this book, absolutely loved his style. If you haven't read The Big Maria or the Jimmy Vedeer series stop here and go read them. They are fantastic!!! I fear if you introduce yourself to his work with this novel you will not give him another thought and that would be a true loss. His other novels are brilliantly executed. I gave this book 3 stars because I downloaded the audible version and the narrator deserves credit, he did a good job.
I'm not too sure what happen to Johnny Shaw's writing, but "Floodgate" is not his style from his other books. There is no humor in this book and all of the sentences are very choppy. There is no flow to the plot and very edgy use of words. Mr. Shaw, what in the world happen to you? I was expecting another Dove Season, Big Maria and Plaster City, but then you gave us a curve ball with "Floodgate" that doesn't makes any sense. Your humor is missing this one for sure. Total bomb on this one.
