The Gang Bust: Library Edition Reviews
This book is awesome! It is the perfect combination of thrill and romance. This should be on everyone's bookshelf.
This is my 5th Mike McBride novel, and I can't say enough about this writer. Mercer keeps you on the edge of your seat, during the dramatic chapters, and has you laughing and enjoying the characters and the dialog during the off duty hours. By now, I feel as if I know all the characters as family friends. Believe me the great heroes and beautiful girls seem like real people. Also, there are enough bit players and supporting roles to fill any wide-screen and employ a lot of character actors. Mercer draws each character individually, no two alike. She even helps us out by providing a handy 'List of Characters' in the back of the book, and makes sure to re-introduce us with subtle hints, in case we have forgotten who this person is. As it takes me a while to finish a book, I appreciate that feature. It may have been a couple of years since this series started, but the subjects are even hotter than ever: immigration reform, people flooding our southern border, drugs, cartels, gangs, political corruption, and all. I am a news junky, and so it is nice to escape into a book that solves it all in 350 pages and has you cheering wildly at the end. One thing I hate in a book is long flowery descriptions and sentences that go on forever. Mercer gives us scant descriptions, a word or two, and leaves the rest to our imagination. That's good. Even so, I feel as if I understand perfectly. Not sure how she does it, but it works for me. Incidentally, although it isn't rated, I feel this book is safe for young people's tender eyes. Mike McBride manages to get us excited and scared without using a single swear word, and manages to round up plenty of bad guys with brains, not brawn, nor gunshot. He even takes his bride on a sensual honeymoon in paradise, without needing an explicit description of every dang detail. Congratulations, author Mercer.
This review is from: The Gang Bust (The McBride Series) (Kindle Edition)review by Robert K. Swisher Jr.This is the 5th book in the McBride series and once again Dorothy Mercer takes on immigration, corruption, and other sordid affairs that go on along the Mexican border. I enjoy the McBride series, but, living and being raised on the border there is no clear cut answer. I am beyond middle age and the border has always been an issue. Every politician that comes into power in the west always runs on a ticket that they will clean up the border - funny. Build a fence and they will go over and under it. It is impossible to put soldiers shoulder to shoulder from California to the tip of Texas. The bottom line is - as long as there is tragic poverty in Mexico illegal immigration will not stop. In books it is possible. Dorothy spins a great story, fast paced, action, politicians on the take (half the politicians in Texas have been in jail)enough romance for those that enjoy the love angle. Great read.
I downloaded The Gang Bust on the recommendation of a friend. This is a contemporary fiction novel which draws you into what is currently happening in the American southwest and western states. In the novel, crime is rampant from south of the border to the nation's capital. Everything in the book seems so real, it makes you wonder...Anyway, I love Mike McBride and the story line leaves you wanting to read more of the series, which is expecting what a good read is supposed to do. Can't wait to see what happens next!
This author has taken on what I believe to be an important subject: the significant levels of violence which exist just south of the US-Mexico border, much of it related to drug gangs. I like to see a novel that aims not only to entertain, but also to address an important issue of the day.
