The details of travels through Hell were so ponderous that whole chapters could have been skipped. I was particularly disappointed with the wrap-up at the end by way of an epilogue... that left way too many questions unanswered. More time on sound development of the story line and less of the junior high-school focus on the distasteful details of Hell would have been nice.
I thought Newbern did a fine job. Too bad he didn't have a better story to work with. I have to suspect that he would have had a difficult time keeping his interest up in the story, too.
I was very intrigued with the first book, "Dirty Streets of Heaven." I really looked forward to this second installment of Bobby Dollar. I was terribly disappointed in this book.
It's hard for me to imagine a publisher's editors letting this get to press in this form. There were so many unnecessary chapters that should have been pulled out before this project was ever printed or performed.
