The Gentlemen’s Hour ~ Don Winslow
Follow up to “The Dawn Patrol”
If you like lots of surf-talk lingo then it’s for you
Have been a big Don Winslow fan ever since “Power of the Dog” but it may be time to give him a rest.
This is a follow on from “The Dawn Patrol” with the same characters. The story is set in San Diego with a set of crimes that PI Boone is investigating knitting together. I didn’t really find it page-turner crime and there seemed to be many passages of exposition needed to give background and explanation and move the plot forward.
If you are into books with a strong surf culture background, then maybe it’s for you.
(If you haven’t read “Power of the Dog” by Don Winslow, it is a Must Read!)
