Great pace consistently dark tone and an original approach Zeltserman is a confident Saving CeeCee Honeycutt enough writer thatven when he seemingly paints himself into a corner he finds a way I watched the underwhelming Neflix movie of Small Crimes first which is the wrong order For some reason I felt that there was a good story hiding beneath the barely comprehensible screenplay I didn t Velva Jean Learns to Drive even know that it was a novel but I looked around to get it in print from movie to book is always an upgrade I was right that there was a good story buried under the filmJoe Denton is a completely toxic human being and should be avoided at all cost Bad people and worse deeds are attracted to him like a magnet and he can t seem to figure out why because he thinks he s a pretty good guy He lets his jailer beat him at checkers right up until he s released after serving seven years in the county jail for disfiguring a district attorney According to Joe it really wasn t his fault because of the coke and booze And things go immediately downhill after serving a sentence whichveryone thinks was too lenientJoe may have served his sentence but a lot of people feel that he has yet to pay his debt to society or at least to the society that Joe once called home mainly one of crooked cops and sociopathic hoodlums Joe owes money and he has some other debts to pay which involve murder For some reason the film used this Rising Strong exposition of the story to spark a love story or sorts The book is pure noir and there s nothing approaching romanceJoe needs someone to be dead or he willnd up worse He flirts with a nurse caring for his intended victim who he will try To Enlist To Do His Dirty Work He Knows That enlist to do his dirty work He knows that has a history ofhow shall I say less than Το Ωρολόγιον του Αγίου Σουλπικίου exemplary patient care Just how the movie thought to create a romance out of this pathetic and darkly comedic couple is beyond my imagination It felt nice sitting with her I know it sounds crazy knowing what she had done but it wasn t as if I was much of a choirboy myself Body count wise she might ve had andge but not by much and not if you included the maimed and woundedSomeone ueue the violins and let the romance beg Joe Denton is an x dirty cop cocaine and gambling ueue the violins and let the romance beg Joe Denton is an x dirty cop cocaine and gambling who gets out of prison after 7 years doing county time for attempting to murder the DA and trying to burn down his office When he gets out he thinks he ll start afresh and help his Babes in the Wood ex wife to raise his twostranged daughters However immediately on his release he is met by the DA who makes it clear that scores still need to be settled His old Sheriff also meets him and lets him know that he is not a free man and he has to finish what he started before he was sent down and to top it all the local mob bosses son lets him know he is still due 30k in bad debts None of the locals want him around least if all his parents with whom he is staying with Joe has to find a way to resolve all these problems and get away a free manThe title of the novel is Small Crimes but Joe s previous and potential future crimes are anything but small I started out uite Windy City Blues Tunnel Vision 2 VI Warshawski Mysteries in 1 VI Warshawski Novels Audio enjoying the novel but the I read the is revealed of our protagonist and despite hisfforts to try and go straight I found that I had little Gilded Lives Fatal Voyage empathy for his situation as he had brought a lot of t Hell isn t down below us it s alive and well in a small town in Vermont This was like driving through a thick fog and you can t get out of it soonnough This claustrophobic tale that takes a look into the criminalcoked up mind of crooked cop Joe Denton stuck with me for a few days I m looking forward to the second one in Zeltserman s Badass Gets Out of Jail trilogy But to tell ya the truthI grabbed my next Myron Bolitar To Read Next to read next to lighten it up a bit Once I figured out that Joe Denton was as full of s as a porta potty on a construction site I was able to sit back and Wonder Woman Warbringer enjoy this book I have to admit that it took me awhile to catch on I think it was when he was surprised hisx wife did.
