    'Reckless Talk Cost Lives'

    It took me a few pages before I fully started to appreciate David Peaces style of writing; if you browse through it and think that you couldn't get into this book you're wrong, just give it a bit and you'll soon find yourself deep into his world of corrupt cops, murdered children, scheming business men, and one poor soul traveling the road paved in blood and dotted with white feathers. Peace does not shy away from the horrors of men and the gritty reality of life. You'll laugh out loud at a few parts but mostly you'll try not to feel sick to your stomach over how truly awful things can happen to the innocent.

    Perfect crime novel.

    Hard, meam, and nasty, this book has it all for noir set. At first I just thought it was depressing, but as it mows along the plot comes together and the bleekness becomes a character. Highly recomended!

    Very Disappointing

    I found this book on a list of the top ten crime and mystery novels of 2009. I was looking forward to a great read. I didn't like the writing style in the least. it was choppy and disjointed and required that you plow right through in order to follow the story. No savoring any great sentences or sequences because there weren't any. It was grim, it was gritty and it was foul. The "F" word happens to be one that I use when appropriate, but the author's use was overkill. The two "C" words were used ad nauseam. The good guy in the story anally rapes a woman he's had sex with a few times and she allows him to spend the night, even though she is bleeding and in pain. I would have cracked him over the head with an iron skillet. Nothing bad that happened to him after that bothered me in the least. Keep in mind he was the good guy. He was always in a state of filth for one reason or another because of the investigating he was doing. The story is all tied up at the end, but all I wanted at the end of this book was a hot bath.

    Pieces of the Red Riding Quartet puzzle

    The second book of the Red Riding Quartet is somewhat of a departure from the first book, in that the stories are related from a character standpoint, but the plots are not fully connected. This is what makes this book work, actually... you are given exposure to new characters and story lines that add pieces to the overall Red Riding Quartet story arc, and it drives the action forward. I also enjoyed the way in which the story alternated between two main characters, showing how their parallel actions eventually bring them together.
