    OK I confess! I wanted to read this one because of it's title. I had never heard of this author and kept fingers crossed the book was as interesting as what seemed offered by the title.Detective Al Quinn is retired sort of. But when two murders happen on the same day, Sheriff Clayton asks Quinn to return temporarily and to help out a rookie detective.There are biker gangs and Mexican cartel gangs and drugs and violence good cops, dirty cops. Lots and lots of energy and movement very fast pace [...]

    Really enjoyed this second book in the series. A delightful cast of characters and an engrossing mystery.

    Detective Wayon Gallard has only been a detective for a month so the deceased woman hanging like a scarecrow at the Three Sisters Organic Farm might be a bigger case than he is ready to handle. Though he has been with the department for eleven years, Gallard has been a detective barely a month. Not even long enough to be comfortable wearing a suit on the job. If the case wasn’t complicated enough, somebody opened fire on the crime scene as Deputy Pudge, Gallard, and the two surviving sisters a [...]

    What a funny title but the book is a solid murder mystery. In case you are wondering we do find out the reason for the title. This book was particularly a fun read for me because it is set in and around Austin Texas and it is always fun to read about events taking place in your home town. One of three elderly spinster sisters is murdered and hung on a cross just outside of Austin. A retired Sheriff Detective is called in to help with the situation. The drug cartels are involved, the DEA, FBI and [...]

    It took me a while to finish this book, but I think that was more me than the book. This was the first of this series that I have read and I had to get into who the characters were. There is a bit of family and friend dynamic and history that is slightly confusing until you figure out who everyone is in relation to everyone else. I hope to read the first book in the series so that I can understand more of the back story.Al is a retired policeman that is recruited by the present sheriff to help o [...]

    It was definitely the title & the cover picture that attracted me to this book being a Harley biker myself! I wasn't sure what to expect other than it was based around crime & supposed to be quite thrilling. I haven't read the previous book but that isn't an issue, this can easily be read as a stand-alone which I like.I really got to grips with the characters & the setting, it's a fast paced mix of Mexican's, drugs, motorcycle gangs, some humour & your average organic farmer lol [...]

    What a great title! The hero Al (the turtle in question) as well as his posse really grew on me. Since this is the first book of the series I have read, it was good to get a bit of the backstory for them. I felt that I got to know the main characters pretty well over the course of the story. The secondary characters did not get as much love, they were often only introduced by name, but in many cases no further characterization followed, which got a bit confusing with the number of biker gangs, c [...]

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Good story.Quite a lot happening in this book, that at times I got left behind a bit. One thing that did spoil it for me was not having read the first book. Knowing more about the characters, their histories and personalities, makes a story more interesting and enjoyable for me.I recommend this book to others, though I do advise reading the the first book before this one.

    Al Quinn is becoming one of my favorite characters. Retired and living a quiet life, or at least he thought he would be by this time, he again finds himself asked to "help" with an investigation. Great story line and great characters. Second book in this series and Russ Hall is must read for me now. Gave this book four stars, but it probably needs to be bumped to five.

    I loved the title and was looking forward to reading this book. There is alot going on in this story. The plot is interesting; but I found the main character a little bland. There are some interesting characters involved but they lack depth. This could be a great book. I like the author's writing style.Disclaimer: A free copy of this ebook was provided in exchange for an honest review.
