Cruelty by Edward Lorn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In the wake of Cruelty's rampage, Tom Morgan is in the hospital, Kirk is in the hospital, The DEA is after Twon, and Twon is after Will Longmire.
In episode three of Cruelty, things move right along. We find out who was in the freezer at the bait shop, what the point is of Cruelty's actions, and just how deep in the shit Will Longmire and the rest of the cast are in. It feels very much like the third episode of a television show, complete with the agonising wait until the next episode.
Ever time I read an Edward Lorn story, I get smacked in the head with how clever his writing is. Lots of colorful metaphors and clever but still realistic dialogue. Also, he has the sense to hire an editor. Like I've said several times before, this is self-publishing done right.
Threatening to punch an author in the junk seems to work wonders. Not only did Edward Lorn trot out the third episode in short order, he also mentioned my threats of genital harm in the introduction.
Four creepy baby doll stars. If you've read the first two, you'll want to read this.
