I must have like this book, as I started reading it at bedtime... and finished in one sitting (or laying.) quirky characters and menacing bad guys, bullets spraying, an interesting combination of grifter/lawyer, it was an adventure.

Needed an easy, fast-paced book after slogging my way thru a 600 page book that I didn't really like. This one fit the bill. I liked the con-man/lawyer character idea for Eddie. A lot of the book is far-fetched, but it was an entertaining, early John Grisham type read. Good if you are looking for a quick thriller.
