Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy for the sole purpose for this review. However the fact that I could not seem to put this book this down is all my own.
Yesterday I let you read an excerpt from the book, Dead Money Run by J. Frank James, if you missed it you can read it here, today I am going to give you my take on this book.
First I will say that when I received this book, I was like okay I need something to read let me check this book out. I will say that I was a little surprised by my reaction to this book. I found that I could not put this book down it was that interesting. Sure there were a few places I admit that I skimmed over or skipped altogether but those were few and far between. And since I have had the attention span of a gnat lately for a book to be able to hold my attention for me to finish reading in less than two day is a huge plus in my book. I found that I could not put this book. Not only was it action packed it also came in a larger typeface which helped these old ailing eyes of mine. I also loved that the chapters were short so it made for great stopping points if I got interrupted reading it.
Although Lou, the main character is an ex con and this is a crime novel, I found myself actually liking his character. I don’t like what he did killing all those people but I did find some redeeming qualities in his character. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. Yep folks it is a series so you know I will be reviewing this series in the near future. So if you are looking for a book full of action check out Dead Money Run (Lou Malloy Crime Series) (Volume 1) if you are anything like me you won’t be able to put the book down.
I love a book that I can learn to like a character I shouldn’t. Thanks for the review!

You know I like murder mysteries series and this does sound like good one! It does seem strange when you end up liking the bad guy somewhat–it has happened to me too!!

I do like action packed books! Especially those I find hard to put down, too!

It’s good when you can find redeeming characteristics in places you might not generally be able to… A sure sign of great writing.
Looking forward to this one even more now!
