Dead Cat Bounce
Old Mrs. Bello, bless her soul, was a married Italian woman with kids, grandkids, and to top it off, a distrust of banks. Everyone in the neighborhood was privy to her distrust and how she hid her money in old shoeboxes and stashed them in secret places in her house. After she passed, her kids looked for months, but to no avail. When a low-life criminal, Butchie, gets wind of this gossip, he’s all over the challenge. Unfortunately for him, he is forced to take on a partner. By means of chance, the two find the hidden money, but after that, things take a turn for the worse with their partnership. Butchie, with his “level-headed thinking”, must constantly remind his partner, Odraye, of the risks associated with their find.
Robert White has written another exciting, intense, and page-turning story. The fact that he has at least one “smart” criminal in his story makes it that much more enjoyable. Many of the situations in the story seem believable and realistic, thus increasing the story’s entertainment. The writing is well-done and easy to follow. This is definitely a read for the murder-mystery and crime lover.
