Book Review -- Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter

Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter
Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin

My enjoyment rating: 1.5 out of 5 stars

Source:  Personal AUTOGRAPHED copy -- makes it even more disappointing

Sensitive reader:  Vulgar language

Larry Ott is his own version of Boo Radley – loner, taunted by neighborhood kids as “Crazy Larry”, misunderstood by his late parents. He only has one friend – Silas “32”Jones — and their shared history includes the mystery of a missing high school girlfriend and the mystery of their true relationship.

I was so disappointed in this book – no mystery, no suspense, only one suspect, no multiple layers to keep you guessing, a few manipulative toys to make you think there was intrigue, when in fact, the author was just blowing smoke.

This was a week of wasted reading. So I'm not going to waste anymore time on a review.
