David J. Schow,
Gun Work
(Hard Case, 2008)

You just gotta love that cover. Be sure to read this in public so others can admire your fine taste in literature. It's very precisely rendered, too. Count the guy's fingers.

I've read about 20 books in the Hard Case Crime series and Gun Work by David J. Schow is far and away the most violent. Like gunfights? You've come to the right place. Like femme fatales? This one's a doozy. Curious about guns? You'll learn a lot.

And if you look up "tough guy" in the dictionary, you'll see Barney's picture. Masked Mexican wrestlers, too.

Read this with clenched teeth.
