    When Charles "Shake" Bouchon, professional wheel man, walks out of prison after a three-year stretch for grand theft auto, he's got only two problems: he's too nice a guy for the life he's led and not nice enough for any other. So he says yes when he's asked to run a simple errand for his former boss and lover, Alexandra Ilandryan, the formidable pakhan of the Armenian mob in Los Angeles.

    Richard Delman says: "A whole lotta fun."
    "Delightfully entertaining"

    Story

    If you are looking for an entertaining story, beautifully read, you have come to the right place.

    OK, you have to like a good crime story. You have to want it to have a sense of humour. You need to be happy for it to be a little off the wall, with a nice line in terse dialogue. you have to like a narrator who identifies with the characters, who IS them.

    If you are up for that. Go for it. You will love it. I did.

    This is the best audio book for sheer entertainment I have listened to for a while. More please, Lou. And stick with Edoardo. He's a keeper.

    In July 1933, the gangster known as George "Machine Gun" Kelly staged the kidnapping-for-ransom of an Oklahoma oil­man. He would live to regret it. Kelly was never the sharpest knife in the drawer, and what started clean soon became messy, as two of his partners cut themselves into the action; a determined former Texas Ranger makes tracking Kelly his mission; and Kelly's wife, ever alert to her own self-interests, starts playing both ends against the middle.

    Linda Lou says: "EXCELLENT!"
    "Bringing the past to life"
    Overall

    I didn't really know what to expect when I downloaded this book. I didn't read the blurb very well - to be honest, I just downloaded it in a three for two sale.
    I was very pleasantly surprised, however. Ace Atkins writes great 'prohibition' prose (ok, it's set after prohibition, but you know what I mean) and Dick Hill, with his very deliberate, precise, narration places the drama beautifully in its historical context.
