#152: Bon Appetit - Glenn Gamble

After spending years building his gambling empire, Jim Money would love nothing more than to have a loving wife, and a stable family life free of the criminal elements that haunt him. He thinks he's found that with Jessica.
Until...
Jim Money bites off more than he can chew when he goes to collect a gambling debt. He's beaten, shot at, finds out that his girlfriend is involved with his best friend, and is forced to work with a woman he despises all in one day.
In trying to discover what is going on, a more sinister truth is brought to light.
THE PLAYERS:
Jim is a loan shark who wants nothing more than to ease out of his criminal lifestyle, marry his girlfriend and start a family.
Jessica is Jim's unreliable girlfriend who runs off with his best friend for an inexplicable reason.
Steve is Jim's best friend and enforcer. He's animal-like, and a deadbeat's worst nightmare.
Carla is Steve's tough as nails wife and who has a nose for detecting anything out of the ordinary. Jim disgusts her, but ends up teaming with him to find the answers that she's NOT looking for.
Chuck is a deadbeat who refuses to pay back money owed to Jim and almost gets him killed.
James is Chuck's hotheaded younger brother who destroys first and never ask questions.
THIS IS THE FIRST INSTALLMENT IN THE JIM MONEY SERIES.

My Opinion:
Warning: There is massive swearing in this book.
I happen to be okay with vulgarity though, so I didn't let it deter me from reading on.
This was a really cool story with a deep, dark twist. One that some won't be able to stomach.
Again that is not me.
Very cool short story. Very cool indeed.


5/5


Recommend? OH YES!!!!
