Why has it taken me this long to read The 25th Hour by David Benioff? It is flat-out brilliant – I am reading it now as if my hair is on fire. It has a breakneck pace that has me quickly alternating between needing to weep with this guy’s friends and family over his impending prison term and wanting to smack his stupid face for letting them all down. Lawdy, what a book!
Also, the new Ken Bruen arrived in bookstores this week: Once Were Cops. Go get it from your neighborhood independent NOW!
