Riding Shotgun: And Other American Cruelties

RIDING SHOTGUN AND OTHER AMERICAN CRUELTIES is a unique collection of quirky, Tarantinoesque crime novellas, representing three very different sub-genres. In the first story, “Easy-Peezy,” a band of elderly Old West bank robbers return to their wicked ways robbing banks in the 1930s John Dillinger era. The second story, “Riding Shotgun,” is a bitter tale about a man pushed to the limits of human endurance and forced to take up arms to protect those he loves. The third tale, “$crilla,” is an urban crime fantasy in which a fledgling hip-hop group kidnaps a record mogul in the hopes of finally making the kind of loot they’ve always dreamed of.

My review

While not normally what I read this I couldn’t help but keep ploughing through with this read

For mr what was the best is the quality of the writing and the feel that each story gave you. The feel of the dark and disturbed mich like the description this reminds you of movies that Tarantino makes.

A very entertaining read that I couldn’t help but read and while not normally my style I was enthralled and captivated by the style.
