"I loved the colorful characters and his raw writing style..." Pete Cornett of Floater
"Fast paced read ...characters that you care about as well as those that horrify you...what was real, what wasn't, and what might have been...explosions, insanity, sex, and a reality that leaves more questions than answers. The book was over too soon." Chris, doorman at the Goodfoot
