    "Good Bad Guy, Fast Read"

    I purchased this on the strength of the Bino series, in which all four books rated 5 stars. I'm not dissapointed, though I do give it 3 stars because it's not near as good as the Bino series. This was written in 1989, but that takes nothing from the story at all.

    Size is a giant of a guy whose run operations for his lifelong friend, now a gangster. He's gone to jail twice for his boss and in the opening scenes he's under indictment again. Each time he's taken the fall for things his boss has actually done. But this time his boss is manipulated into believing Size will snitch, despite all experience and evidence to the contrary. So he puts a hit on Size.

    This sets off a chain of events that begins to undermine a solid crime organization as well as a Columbian Cartel they deal with. Suddenly this wakes up Size to the reality he's been blindly true and loyal to everyone but himself. He's been a fool, but now he is forced to use his strength, wit, smarts and savvy to go against them all.

    The narrator gets 3 stars for his great voice, but too careful diction. I've a sneaking suspicion he missed some of the humor AW Gray is famous for.
