Wow, what a novel!

On an average year, I'll pick up about 150 books, finishing about 70. Of those 70, a handful or two I'll give five out of five stars over at my LibraryThing account. Obviously, Money Shot got five stars.

It's been almost a month since I finished Money Shot, and I can't stop thinking or talking about it. Faust's novel has it all: perfect pacing, dead-on dialogue, crystal-clear characters and exposition in just the right places.

And you know what else rocks about this novel? Not only is it a great length (250 pages), but it also has a nice price ($6.99).

I'm definitely gonna hold on tight to this novel. Like another Hard Case Crime entry, Lawrence Block's Grifter's Game, Money Shot is that rare paperback that I need to reread to study -- find out why it works so well.

And I'll tell you one more thing: I don't know much, but I do know Money Shot will appear in many reading relatives' stockings this Christmas. Ooooo, baby, I can't wait. Wonder if Dorchester Publishing sells in bulk. . . .

I'd heard good things about Money Shot for several months before I finally got around to reading it. I fully concur with your praise. Good stuff.
