I did not like the criminals, but I did not like the protagonist Oklahoma State Trooper (our hero) either. I'm supposed to really hate the bad guys and love the good guys. It just did not work for me.

ODELL is Larmar's cousin, a hulking manchild. With blank, unfeeling eyes. He live for daddy Lamar. Surely he will die for him...
RICHARD's survival hangs on a sketch: a crude drawing of a lion and a half-naked woman. For this Lamar has let Richard live...

I like this author a lot. Some of his books contain the same characters, some have relatives of characters in other books, etc.

Very harsh language, and it was vivid in decriptive manner of what the men did.

I enjoyed this book, the characters are well defined. The bad guys are evil but cunning and the good guys have flaws. Good dialog, fast paced story. One of Steven Hunters best.
