Review of "A Wanted Woman" by Eric Jerome Dickey

I've been a fan of Eric Jerome Dickey for many, many years and I can't get enough of his writing. I recently finished reading A Wanted Woman, EJD's 21st novel and here's my review: 

In “A Wanted Woman” no detail was left unturned by Eric Jerome Dickey, the master of thrillers. His in-depth descriptions of the story’s locations (Trinidad, Barbados, etc.), its complex characters, the dialect of the regions, the music, the food, etc. were spot on. I felt like I was there with Reaper when she was wrecking havoc against all her enemies…and they were aplently. Also, there were so many great lines in this novel. 

Here’s one of my favorites from a conversation between Black Jack and Reaper (a woman of many faces who switches accents at a drop of a dime and who is deadly as hell): “Keep a woman broke, keep her under control. Give her enough to get by. She won’t starve to death, but she’ll never be able to afford to leave. That’s from the handbook on how to be a pimp.” 

The action was definitely a thrill ride! A must read!
