Hi! Today, I’m going to review The Disposables.
I had this author, David Putnam, on my podcast recently, and read the book while I was getting ready to talk to him, and I had almost finished it at that time. I’ve finished it since.
And it’s just fantastic. I mean, if you look at the cover, that kind of gives you an idea of the tone of the book right there. It’s about gritty, urban, Central L.A.—South Central L.A.—and an ex-cop who is also an ex-con who is trying to rescue children from these abusive foster homes. And he uses illegal methods to do it. And that’s all I’m going to say, because really to say more would be to tell you way too much.
The plot is convoluted. There are so many twists and turns and it’s so realistically written, as well. It’s like a fantastic hardboiled mystery and a thriller all packed into one. Just suspenseful. The dialogue is sharp. The characters, you care about them. It’s an excellent book, if you like, gritty, hardboiled crime fiction. This is an excellent series to try out, and I highly recommend it.
Thanks. I’ll talk to you later.
