Read full description of the books Hot:In this book, Lutz employs a clean, crisp writing style that is full of—but not overloaded with—detail and description that add to the novel’s sense of place. His character, Carver, has a lone-wolf warrior persona that reminds one of Robert Crais’ Joe Pike, or Lee Child’s Jack Reacher, but, of course, predates them.
And, because Carver is crippled in one leg and struggles physically, he is no Pike or Reacher . . . he’s more like Charles Willeford’s Hoke Mosely.
I enjoyed the book, and finished it (which sounds like a left-handed compliment, but isn’t, since I give up on a lot of them after a few chapters).
