Publisher's Summary

The old man hears them before he sees them, the three boys coming over the hill, disturbing the peace by the river where he's fishing. He smells the gun oil too, too much oil on a brand-new shotgun. These aren't hunters, they're rich kids who don't care about the river and the fish and the old man. Or his dog. Red is the name of the old man's dog, his best friend in the world. And when the boys shoot the dog—for nothing, for simple spite—he sees red, like a mist before his eyes. And before the whole thing is done there'll be more red. Red for blood...

I enjoyed the story Red. It is a character driven story, starring an older man for once. Some kid shoots his old dog's head off and the old man wants an apology. The story starts with a bang and builds from there. The old man is dogged in getting his apology which leads to more trouble then one would suspect. He is also worried about everybody's weight. As a dog lover, I was for the old man all the way.

The second story Passenger, is not as good, but it is different. I liked it, but not as much as Red. The plot was pretty thin. It has an interesting look at the difference between the popular girl at school and the biggest slut at school.

The narrator is excellent and makes the whole experience better. He does have a voice that sounds like it is made for westerns and neither story here is a western.

two adequate short stories

If you're thinking about Clancy's 'No Remorse', think again. 1st of all, it's actually two short stories, second the stories are more a-kin to stories by Abe (GrandPa) Simpson. Some of the plot twists are unbelievable. Even so, I found myself waiting for GradPa to finish before I drove him back to the home.
