Well Natty is an old vaudevillian and he is non stop.
Lots of fun.
His mission is to escort home to California one Natty Silver, an eighty-six-year-old comedian of the Golden Age of Burlesque.

"Drowning" was a strange one but still held your interest to the end.
It's too bad, really --this is a pleasant enough little read, but compared to Winslow's other riveting and meticulously researched Neal Carey novels, this is just passable. I felt compelled to read all five, in spite of many bad reviews written past #3.

It's kind of silly.
Characters as always with Winslow are " real" people on display with their strengths, weaknesses and flaws. The characters evolve, but not always in a positive or realistic way.

Consider: Buddha's mirror taught me more about the Chinese Cultural Revolution than any textbook, and California Fire & Life made me the best fire expert this side of Red Adaire.

And bodyguard Neal, scorching through the trackless desert at eighty miles per hour, brooding on his inner child by freezing starlight, and looking down the barrel of one gun too many, is soon dodging vultures and on the brink of a surprise watery grave. But the old man makes it harder and harder for Neal to take him home.
Mmmm, more a 2 and a half than 3, but I'm giving it a 3 because it's Winslow.

Some of the themes (insurance fraud, crooked attorneys) are developed more fully in his later serious novel "California Fire and Life. His books stay with me for reflection.
Read "A Cool Breeze," "Buddha's Mirror", "The Death & Life of Bobby Z" and "California Fire & Life" for the best of Don Winslow. Se ha producido un problema al guardar tus preferencias de cookies.

It's actually pretty funny, even if some of the jokes are old and corny!
But I would never recommend any to a friend, unlike certain (later) others that I would cheerfully force on a friend, knowing they'd thank me later. Not one of Winslow's best. It's a sort of slight affair, both in length (198 short pages) and content, but still an enjoyable read. No es necesario ningún dispositivo Kindle.

Short, funny, with very old jokes - that's what the ex-vaudeville character Natty Silver is - and it's a fair description of the book. I'd definitely be interested in reading the rest of the "Neal Carey" mysteries! I disagree.

Basically, it has a "Midnight Run" feel to it - a private detective has to get a man somewhere the man doesn't want to go!
The Neal Carey series (his first novels) are not that. When he's in top form, NOBODY writes better. The mobster wants to eliminate him. is even known.

#5 in the Neal Carey series. I am satisfied that I read all five. And in the last 2 books it is hard to care about the characters in trouble. Edgar and Shamus Award-nominee Don Winslow combines breathless suspense, zany wit, and whiplash action in his latest novel featuring grad student/private eye Neal Carey. The location of the old man (we find out is non other than Natty Silver!) Remember “Who’s on first”?
