9780062115287 â€œLike Carl Hiaasen, Berney delights in the cartoonish. Like Elmore Leonard, he can drive a plot. What sets him apart is how well he evokes love, making the romance...as compelling as the mystery.â€ â€”Boston Globe Lou Berney immediately earned a seat of honor at the mystery mastersâ€™ table with his crackling caper novel, Gutshot Straightâ€”a lightning-fast, fiendishly clever suspenser that screamed for a sequel. And here it is. Former professional wheel man Charles â€œShakeâ€ Bouchon is back, living in the Caribbean paradise of Belize with his lawless past far behind himâ€”until a gunshot tears through his beachside restaurant and heâ€™s on the run again. A twisting tale filled with lawmen, con men, andÂ hit men; a beautiful but deadly FBI agent; and a murderous thug named Baby Jesus, Whiplash River recalls the best of the off-the-wall crime fiction impresariosâ€”Elmore Leonard, Carl Hiaasen, James W. Hall, Robert Ferrigno, Tim Dorseyâ€”while establishing its own unique orbit in the noir universe.
