Whale Season

I picked up this book by N. M. Kelby the other day. It had a quote from Carl Hiassen on the front, and that was my sole reason for this choice. So...

It did remind me somewhat of Hiassen's books, which I tend to really enjoy, but I didn't enjoy this one quite as much. For one, it had a deranged killer in it, which is not likely to get star reviews here. Secondly, it didn't have as much of a mission as a Hiassen book, which happens to be one of the things I really. Thirdly, the ending was eh.

However. The writing was pretty decent and the story definitely kept me interested in what the heck was going to happen. Not overall a bad read, but not my favorite either. Too much violence and creepiness.
