With Blunt Force

Have just started Late Rain by Lynn Kostoff and all I can say is "Goodness." Not the type of goodness that has you smiling and wondering where the bad stuff starts, but the type that has you substituting the word "goodness" for other not-as-pretty words. Not to mention, reading certain parts out loud to make sure I'm not misreading any of these well crafted conversations.

It isn't just the fact that Kostoff is outrageously blunt. But it's the way he's blunt that has me so enticed.

Chapter 12:
"This impediment, what will be necessary to remove it? In short, how badly do you want this person hurt and for how long?"
"Six feet and forever," Corrine said.

Next chapter? Oh, yes please.
