Loved it! 😍

Perfect of its amusing and highly readable romp that doesn't let you down for a minute.

If you're looking for a light-hearted, fast-paced, funny read, this book is just perfect. The plot is convoluted but seamless, the characters lightly yet expertly drawn, the situations hilariously unpredictable. Uncle Gabriel the big game hunter is tough and Hemingway-esque, his nephew Cameron grows on you as you delve deeper into the book. Well written and well edited, the story of the hapless pair who accidentally murder a peer of the realm is a great read for a holiday or a rainy weekend.

I particularly enjoyed the clueless Yakuza minions and the way the author makes the goings-on in California's criminal underworld seem ineptly entertaining. Many authors who attempt this style of humour come off as merely teenage frat-boy, but Nate is a mature master of his genre. I'd gladly read another title by this author.

I'm an author but I also read a lot. I do especially like to read books by high quality indie authors, because you often get original and unconventional work which wouldn't have been picked up by the major publishers.
