Say It With Bullets

Say It With Bullets (Hard Case Crime #18)Say It With Bullets by Richard Powell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Bill Wayne is touring the country, conveniently stopping at cities where old partners of his live, trying to find out which of them shot him in the back years ago in China and took a shot at him in front of his house weeks before. His tour guide is a girl that had a crush on him when he was in high school. His old partners keep turning up dead and a sheriff named Carson Smith keeps showing up at inappropriate times.

The title of this book is what caught my interest a couple years ago. While it was good, I didn't love it. The action was good and parts were pretty funny but I'm not sure if the humor was intentional or not. Wayne's partners getting whacked got repetitive after the second one. The ending was a little predictable but only because there weren't very many other possibilites.

So, Say It With Bullets was an entertaining read but not one of my favorite Hard Case books by a long shot. Still, love the title.
