Monday – It was so much easier than the old days. Back then, it was closer to a fifty-fifty deal. Half of the investment came from the sheer force of Herm’s personality, the other half from pure sweat equity. Herm was fast closing on sixty-years-old, practically ancient in the flesh game. And with no retirement plan but for the slivers of cash he could stow in his City National Bank safety deposit box, the former pimp was all about less talk and a high-efficiency system for identifying the most commercial girl.
This will be the third Doug Richardson thriller I will have read and ‘Lucky Dey’ is yet another of the quirky, slightly off-beat characters, which Doug manages to bring so vividly to life in his writing.
’99 Percent Kill’, is going to be the beginning of a series, which will establish Lucky on the L.A. scene, although Doug does assure the reader, that this can be read equally well as a stand alone story.
Herm sounds like a real rough diamond and I am sure that Lucky will have to be on his toes to outwit this seasoned campaigner!
