Best Damn Books of 2012

Hard Bite by Anonymous-9 features a paraplegic vigilante, his enforcer (an extremely well-trained capuchin monkey named Sid), a pissed off mother (who just happens to be the de facto head of a Mexican drug cartel), a savvy streetwalker, a boatload of Los Angeles law enforcement, enough blood to float the Titanic, and a guns blazing finale... 

 

 

 

 

Characters like Dean Drayhart are few and far between so enjoy it while it lasts... 

Deep, rich, vibrant characters that propel the action...

 

Assured, sparkling prose, that is all show and no tell...

 

I'll be placing her other works at the top of my reading list... 

 

Anonymous-9 consistently delivers quality...one of my top crime reads for 2014...
