I'm sure glad I found this writer. The Holland series is excellant.

Prequel to "Feast Day of Fools" with most of the unusual cast of extreme characters, with the border town old police chief boxed in the middle. (2nd reading and appreciated it more)

JLB's usual, which is to say VG to excellent. You get the usual atmospherics--never a dull weather day in Burkeland--wonderful dialogue, nine unforgettable characters--for all of whom one cheers--and a strong endorsement of aging with grace and power. Then there's the violence and the sewer-gas smell of death. I'd like to read this book again in Texas (where I used to live) because I think the pages would turn themselves.
