‘Cold Shot’ Hot Read

ImageI’m reading Wallace Stroby’s COLD SHOT TO THE HEART. Terrific thriller from our friends at Minotaur Books.

 

Stroby tells a masterful story of career-criminal Crissa Stone, a woman who has been thrust into the life of a loner and who handles that, and the complications of a heist gone wrong, with the calm cool of a Sergio Leone anti-hero.

 

Noir is a tough nut to crack and Stroby does a lovely, lively job of casting flawed, fickle characters in a whirlwind of bad decisions and best  intensions.

A remarkable read. Nicely done, Mr. Stroby.
