Carsten Stroud ¶ Lizard Skin epub

Lizard SkinOtential for human cruelty and ugliness is always there coiled in silent waiting like a rattlesnake in an arroyo When violence touches Beau's life on a slow Friday afternoon it arrives in a rattler fast strike He checks out a reported armed robbery at Joe Bell's truck stop and finds an amazing shootout in progress between an enraged Joe Bell whose wild shooting endangers the whole area and a band of Dakota Indians firing back with bows and arrows When the smoke clears a Dakota boy is dead Beau McAllister has been forced to shoot Joe Bell in the butt and Beau's own problems with the law have just begun But what appears to be a bizarre incident Carsten Stroud writes police procedurals from the perspective of the patrolman on the beat They encounter life at its rawest and most primal and the author does nothing to spare the reader the gory details of man’s inhumanity to man The present opus was published over 2 decades ago Somehow I cringe at the Female District Attorney’s admonition that if you’re going to be forced to shoot a perp shoot to kill and spare the county the cost of settling the ensuing lawsuit out of court; burial costs are cheaper Like so many books written since the arrival of computer word processors this one suffers from word bloat The author waxes lyrical describing landscapes and people and how they dress He digresses freuently at length to pages of background history which tends to make the story drag It often takes him a long to get where he intends to go A less is approach would tauten the storyline
