Catriona's War - Jean Grainger - A Short Summary and Review

The Subtle Art of Brutality - Ryan Sayles - A Short Summary & Review

 


A short summary of The Subtle Art of Brutality:

A private "dick" (sorry, couldn't help it, you'll understand when you read the book) discovers the "burning" desires of a step-in father.

My favorite Ryan Sayles quote from the book:

"Crying and consonants, when that’s all you speak, are not good storytellers."


Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What makes a good cop?

What makes a family?

My thoughts about The Subtle Art of Brutality:

A great piece of modern noir.

SOOO many clich├ęs!  I loved it!

Richard Dean Buckner is one of the biggest pigs ever and it wouldn't be a good story if he wasn't one.
