Meet Hank Mondale, a private investigator. He's also a heavy drinker, irresponsible with money, disrespectful, and a whiner. What was he said? Something about guys like him have to work so hard for all they got, because they've had it so rough. Or something like that. Guys like you put yourself in those bad situations.
Don't misunderstand, this is not a slam against the book. Heck no! It's Pepper's skill at writing that makes Mondale the complete loser that he is. Or at least that's assuming Pepper meant for Mondale to be a despicable being.
Really all you have to do is read the feeding scenes to know that Pepper has the imagination and the skill to entertain. The first feeding is gross with an "Ewww!" or two, it works its way into "Nasty!", lands firmly into skin crawling. By the 2nd feeding you're skimming the worst of it, and by 3rd you're just skipping the whole feeding. Oh yeah, it's that detailed. It was great! Who doesn't love a good skin crawling moment.
As for the rest of the characters, well there's that evil little...and that twisted devious...(Sigh! You'll have to read it to see these would be spoilers).
What was weird was the crescendo happened, and it seemed as if the book was about to end, but the music kept going. Yes, that's a little novice word play for Symphony. HTH (How the H, not hope that helps) is Pepper going to wrap this up? He does it though, and leaves you with a tiny nugget of a potential cliffhanger. Fantastic ending to a truly twisted (loved every minute) book!
Oh, 4 stars because Mondale really was just that obnoxious, to the point of he treated every woman very badly. As stated above, he's despicable.
