    I m not sure any of Kim Wozencraft s novels can top her biography a narcotic informant who ended up becoming a junkie and subsequently having a long stay in jail But The Devil s Backbone is a fine novel, driven by a hypnotic, racing hard boiled prose that rockets the reader from incident to incident In fact, it rockets one right past a few cliched plot points and reveals that the well read reader might guess around the one third mark, but this novel is so firmly rooted in character that I de I m not sure any of Kim Wozencraft s novels can top her biography a narcotic informant who ended up becoming a junkie and subsequently having a long stay in jail But The Devil s Backbone is a fine novel, driven by a hypnotic, racing hard boiled prose that rockets the reader from incident to incident In fact, it rockets one right past a few cliched plot points and reveals that the well read reader might guess around the one third mark, but this novel is so firmly rooted in character that I decided to forgive the few slight spots and just go with it I m glad I did There weren t really any surprises, but Wozencraft s style is well crafted, featuring long, drifting sentences that sweep you up and then shorten to terse, truncated machine gun prose that batters you It s affective The Devil s Backbone is not a classic of the genre, but it s certainly worth checking out It s a shame she hasn t published since 2006

    So the influence of my best friend continues as I read crime suspense books simultaneously I remember buying this with her because we love hunting books on sale She saw the book and told me that the book looks promising based on its description She was not planning to buy it though but I insisted because same with Suspicious Origin, sisters were involved so I still purchased it for us and because it only costs less than a hundred bucks.As I read the book, I learned that it was about a woman n So the influence of my best friend continues as I read crime suspense books simultaneously I remember buying this with her because we love hunting books on sale She saw the book and told me that the book looks promising based on its description She was not planning to buy it though but I insisted because same with Suspicious Origin, sisters were involved so I still purchased it for us and because it only costs less than a hundred bucks.As I read the book, I learned that it was about a woman named Kit whose father is a Ranger and her sister is a cop Here comes the irony, she was involved in a crime and didn t bother telling her family because of the fear that her family might discover her job until her sister was also involved in a crime She was murdered, to be precise.Actually the story was great to begin with It has a lot of different and very interesting characters There are also a lot of different twists that add up to the suspense and mystery of the story line Every character and event was vital so that you can understand the whole plot I really appreciate that but the negative side was also very easy to pinpoint.First is Kit s memory lapses I understand that she had gone through traumatizing experiences but I really don t see the use of that in the story At first, to tell you the truth, it tickled my curiosity that I came up with a lot of conclusions about the story but as I went towards the end, I realized its uselessness It actually made me confused and somewhat pissed of at Kit s character I wish it was explained thoroughly to the readers to avoid vagueness.Second is that as you go through the climax, the story was like a mixed bowl of different food that you cannot distinguish the flavors There were numerous key points given that were not, like I said, explained well that I think were useless and should be removed.Third, I got sort of disappointed with the ending Romance actually drives the story to another level so I think it lacks in that department Yes, I was satisfied with the events but I think it should have ended differently The energy went really low and I want somethingfrom it because the story started really strong The author actually showed a little love between two characters but I was dismayed when she didn t pushed through with it.Fourth, I really wanted to know who assaulted Kit and if it was related to her sister s murder even the threats that she received beforehand There were so many loopholes that were not explained well Maybe for some of you who have read this, you have not notice such but I did that s why this questions haunt me at night.That s it then Hope you understood my points

    Wanted, by Kim Wozencraft was a muchexciting book However, Wozencraft s books are unique because of her characters The dialogue and thoughts of prison inmates Wanted , strippers, and other non mainstream characters are raw and gutsy She doesn t write dainty books

    This was a very easy read with just a few characters It was suspenseful without being confusing and having to really think about the story line.
