‘Dead Money Run’ by J. Frank James

‘Lou Malloy’ is turning into a character that could easily grow on me, despite his rather violent methods of meting out his own justice!

The book’s author J. Frank James, will be stopping by with a guest post in just a few days time, so be sure not to miss that!

So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story and its author, simply click here, or on the book image.

If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.

It seems Susan was real quiet and didn’t have a lot of visitors, according to some busybody named Martha Allright. She said that Susan never socialized with any of the other people in the building.

What I really needed was some official information on my sister. The kind of information one might find in an investigative file. Since police reports were public information I figured I could get it online. All I needed was a computer.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • Intrigued by Susan but even more so by the busybody, Martha Allright.

    Almost finished South Of The River by Blake Morrison. A poor read, please excuse me for not sharing a teaser with you.

    • Hi Tracy,

      There is definitely more to Susan than meets the eye and Martha Allright is just a gossip … no matter who is doing the asking !!

      A short, punchy style of dialogue, which I am finding very easy to relate to … a great read so far.

      At first glance ‘South Of The River’ sounds like one I would enjoy and I love the cover art. I enjoy character driven stories, however the general consensus of opinion seems to suggest that the whole story is a little slow and boring, so perhaps this is one I should give a miss to. Sorry you weren’t exactly captivated by your book and better luck with the next one 🙂

  • The teasers you included were interesting. In a way, they remind me of a Sue Grafton story… just something about the way they are worded. (and that’s a good thing – I like her books!)

    The following is 28% into The White Queen by Philippa Gregory, my current book club selection.

    “I am running behind my husband, my hand on my large belly, down the long winding corridors of the Palace of Westminster. Servants run behind us carrying goods. ‘You can’t go. You swore to me you would be with me for the birth of our baby. It will be a boy, your son. You must be with me.’
    He turns, his face grave. ‘Sweetheart, our son will have no kingdom if I don’t go.’ “

    • Hi Kelly,

      I have never read any Sue Grafton books, although I have several friends and work colleagues who have read the entire ‘Kinsey Millhone’ series and eagerly await each new episode!

      Thanks for sharing your teaser lines from ‘The White Queen’, they sound full of anguish and emotion and it sounds as though the husband is potentially going off into a dangerous situation, just as his child is about to be born!

      I haven’t read any of the Philippa Gregory ‘Cousins’ War’ series, although I did read some of her very early books from the ‘Wideacre’ series, which dates back to the 1980s! The ‘Cousins’ War’ series is another very popular book club choice and you have chosen to read the series from the beginning, which is good, as once again friends have said that the books do really need to be read in order.

      Thanks for stopping by, I always look forward to your comments 🙂

      • The only other Philippa Gregory book I’ve read is Wideacre, too! At the time, I didn’t know there would be more and never read any others. The White Queen was not my pick, so I was glad the girl who made the selection started with book one. I’m enjoying it so far, but don’t know if I’ll continue with the series in the near future. I think there are five more and I already have so many other things I want to read!! Perhaps someday.

        • I think I read the first couple in the Wideacre series, but that’s it!

          As much as I enjoy the odd helping of historical fiction, I’m not sure that I could read all the books in the ‘Cousins’ War’ series and from listening to friends who are avid followers, they really do all link together!

          Maybe if there were just a few more hours in the day 🙂

    • Hi Mary Ann,

      I think ‘was’ interesting is probably more to the point, although the interest in her is of ongoing concern to many people!

      Thanks for stopping by today, I hope that your week is going well 🙂
