Well written detective thriller

If you could sum up In the Moon of Red Ponies in three words, what would they be?

Violent, intelligent, unconventional

What about Tom Stechschulte’s performance did you like?

A first class reader with a tough voice suited to the characters.

Any additional comments?

A character thriller, with the three main players many shades of grey. If I have a slight criticism it is that some of the villains are pure evil to the limits of credibility. The style is intelligent written, with frequent turns of phrase that made me feel, "that's spot on".

Well read. Ending a bit abrupt. Over all enjoyable. Fifteen words I do not need.
