    Good read Well written engrossing tale set in the 70's on the Texas Gulf Coast Once I got into it I found it hard to put down Lots of collouialisms crude language but character appropriate Sort of Kinky Friedman ish but not as outrageous

    If you enjoy Carl Hiaasen's books that take place in the Florida Everglades with a cast of uirky sassy foul mouthed characters you will enjoy Thin Slice of Life

  3. Rick Kennerly Rick Kennerly says:

    Good news for Slice characters like the Billy D's of the world when Brent Douglass can recover from a life spent drifting the blowing sands of Lubbock and the Gulf Coast to become both literate and an author Strong shades of Carl Hiaasen run all through this book rich uirky textured and full of characters you'll find on only one place on earth the barrier islands of the Texas Gulf Coast Slice brims full of every Texas idiom I've ever heard in English and in TexMex and made me want to spoon Wolf Brand Chili and Ranch Style Beans right from the can as I read 'Mile's' only difficulty will be having any color left over for another book If you're a Hiaasen fan this book is as character Billy D would say Like a sore peteryou cant beat it

    It's not that often that I read a book where I really like BOTH the story and the characters but Thin Slice of Life hit both right out of the park It's a fast paced witty murder mystery set on the Texas coast moved along by memorable characters like the smarmy Neon Leon Guidry the threatening but in a good waymostly Miguel Negron OB Hadnott a stalwart Texas Ranger far far out of his native habitat and Charlie Sweetwater a boyish charming ne'er do well who somehow manages to do very wellI can't think of anything I DIDN'T like about Thin Slice of Life other than it was over too soon

    A mysterythriller set in the Texas Gulf coast with colorful characters and language that bring the region to life The writing is both outrageously funny at times bordering on slapstick while at other times it is downright scary with good people standing up against corruption and violence An authentic story with compelling characters my favorite is the most honorable Texas Ranger this is a hard to put down story that leaves you waiting for the next installment

    Nice book if just for the local feeling I know the area so it was entertaining Very easy read I was done in about 3 days I would recommend as what I call an airplane book Gets you lost in its pages for a while

    I enjoyed this in the same way I've enjoyed Carl Hiaasen's books with a touch of El Leonard

  9. Barbara Barbara says:
