Edgar Award winner Joe R. Lansdale writes outrageous fiction that rockets along with violent spikes of action and intense humor. Gulf War vet Cason Statler has moved back to his East Texas hometown after losing his job as a reporter in Houston (sleeping with both the boss' wife and 30-year-old stepdaughter has a way of ruining career prospects). But when his new gig has him investigating a local girl's disappearance, Cason opens a can of worms that might get him killed.

Good Story with So-So narration

I went on a Joe Lansdale tear, listening to 9 in a row. In retrospect I wouldn't do that again as the same author may wear on you unless he/she is one of your favorites. E.g., I could listen to Ken Follett and James Lee Burke books one after another, but Lansdale isn't as good - not bad, but certainly not one of my all time favorites.

Overall, the story was pretty good. For the most part I looked forward to getting back to it and finishing it. The characters were good and held my interest.

While this book is the second about "Camp Rapture", a town / settlement in East Texas, there is no need to listen to them in order. They are separated by a couple / few generations and independent.

The narrator was ok, but more akin to an annoying B-List bad actor.

Overall, I would recommend the book as it was entertaining and held my attention!
