PI Red Farlow dives headfirst into a hornets' nest of extremists.
His new client, Hank Tillman,
Hank’s song, Redneck Devil, attracts the attention of a violent group called the Blue Magnolia. Its leaders want him to perform at their next hate rally. There's another, darker reason the Blue Magnolia wants Hank in its fold.
An elderly patient in a Florida insane asylum reveals a decades-long secret that devastates Hank. It’s the worst kind of fake news.
Can Farlow root out the truth? The PI has his own problems as he confronts a hired killer face-to-face.
Another Red Farlowe mystery. A character I really like. Tough yet caring, smart yet streetwise, all the things you look for in this type of tough, gritty mystery.
The composition of this book was different from the other Red Farlowe mystery I read, Rich and Gone. Red’s case notes were interspersed in this one and it took me some time to adjust my reading rhythm. Don’t get me wrong. It was marked. Just something I wasn’t used to. Not bad; just different. Also the writing style was different in places... the sentences shorter, more reporting like. But it achieved the feeling I think Ranew was trying to accomplish. Made this more black noir-like in a few ways. Ranew added a few more characters. Some good guys/girls, some not so good.
This is not really a book filled with descriptive writing. Ranew’s a storyteller and a good one. I think all it really needs is another book in the series as soon as possible :)
