Razor Girl Front Matter kind of sets the pace and expectations, now doesn't it?
Starts with crash – bang. Yes.
Former girlfriend, Virgo, turned me onto this author, and I’ve been ever so grateful. Good, good stuff.

“After a few chilly minutes he wished he'd put on some shoes and long pants.” Page 11.
Obviously, my people. On the way home from the bookstore, after purchasing the novel, I was chatting with Sister, and I mentioned that I didn’t like wearing long pants. I should move closer to the coast. See the old Libra horoscope for more on that.

After too much time in Austin? There’s nothing quite as much fun as a fictional stoner cop. If only.
The intertwining of various elements, the stoner cop, a fictional star of reality TV, an alleged mafiaso, love interests, all weave together.

A good romp through Key West (FL) and similar environs.
