Jim Satterfield writes a book that you will not be able to put down so don’t start at night. It is sort of a love story, a thrilling mystery, and a who dun it, all in a weird twisted way that just works for Satterfield.
Lee Shelby robs a drug dealer, Tom Tucker, of his drugs and cash – not just a small amount but five kilos of Peruvian flake and seventy-five thousand dollars in cash. He did not do this because he wants the cash or the drugs but he wants to get his girl, Laura back. Laura is In the clutches of Tom Tucker a middle aged drug dealer, who has several police officers protecting him so they turn a blind eye at his dealings. Tucker has Laura so hooked on drugs that she will do anything for the drugs, and that is just where he wants her.
It is one of those stories that have hair brained ideas that you know are going to end badly but they do not end the way we think they will. Lee meets people who help him along the way and you wonder if they are on Tom Tucker’s payroll and are setting Lee up.
I don’t want to give away anything that will spoil the book for you but if you want a fast read that has everything you want in a book, this is the book for you.
