DEAD I WELL MAY BE (Suspense-NY/Mexico-Cont) – G+
Adrian McKinty – 2nd book
Pocket Books, 2004 – Paperback
Michael Forsythe, a 19-year old illegal immigrant from Dublin, is an enforcer for a New York Crime boss. After being betrayed by his employer, which lands him in a Mexican prison, he returns to New York determined for revenge.
This is a tough book for me to evaluate. It saddened me as the character of Michael is young and highly intelligent, yet seemingly unwilling to leave the violent life he’s living. It is brutal, filled with profanity and violence, but wonderfully written. If you can deal with the first two, it’s worth reading for the writing alone.
