Overview

Ex-cop, Robert “Lucky” Lucas’ quiet Friday night with girlfriend Mona is shattered when her 18 year-old son Eric is critically injured in a drive-by shooting in San Francisco. Eric is hospitalized and the instincts of an angry and protective mother surface and Mona asks Lucky to “find the people who did this to my son.”
Lucky quickly finds himself in the middle of an organized crime war in Chinatown as rival gangs battle for turf and where extortion, murder and prostitution are part of daily life, and family secrets reach all the way back to mainland China. From restaurants and bars to card rooms rich with trouble, from neighborhood houses fronting for brothels to gun play in Golden Gate Park, the sights, sounds, and smells of Chinatown and San Francisco make Dragon Hand an exciting and fast-paced crime novel, the third in the Lucky Lucas series.

A former San Francisco Private Investigator, Mark Gummere lives in San Francisco and teaches Cinema Studies at Bay Area Colleges. The first two novels in the Lucky Lucas series, Scar Tissue and The Damage, are also available on Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon. The fourth novel in the Lucky Lucas series is underway.

The plot is weak, the search for answers poorly done, and the ending very unsatisfying. I think it's an attempt at the hard-boiled private detective style, but the main character merely comes off as annoying, incompetent, and uninteresting. There's one small part of the story which is not only totally irrelevent but also extremely improbable. I'm not sure if it was added to make the detective look tough or just to add a thrill, but it does neither. It's not a long book, but I found myself wishing it would end sooner. It wouldn't even be woth reading if it was free. Skip it. JB
