I have to admit that Chief Pullet and the communities reaction in JusThis disgusted me. But ya haveta be true to your characters. I take a shot in Brand of Justice as a Midwest Booker Reviewer stated. It was a fun book to write. Nailing teenage angst. When a young man is boxed in by the cops he finally reacts. It's got plenty of death and mayhem, but no sex. Some love. No sex. I promise.
And now for a review from a fellow author from Arizona. Marie Fostino . . .
A bucket was filled with water; another empty bucket had been attached to the crossbow's trigger after passing over the back of the chair. The crossbow was loaded with an arrow and cranked into firing position. Sounds interesting doesn't it. This story JusThis by Curt Rude is about unethical police conduct, corruption and death.
I have to admit, personally I don't like to read books with so much swearing and sex, but the author had to do character development and there was no other way to paint the picture. I followed the lives of Charlie & Agnes Pullet, and Martin & Lacy McMurphy which lead to a chain of events of corruption and sadness.
The author wrote: 'When a simple truth is revealed that might be construed as threatening, action is quickly taken to silence the voice of truth.' I am not going to give the story away, you will just have to read it and find out for yourself what he means by that. Thank You Curt Rude for a very interesting read.
