THE KINDLE TAPROOM REVIEWS HOT PURSUIT!

THE KINDLE TAPROOM REVIEWS HOT PURSUIT!

I WAS STUNNED AND HUMBLED BY THIS NEW REVIEW OF THE E-BOOK VERSION OF HOT PURSUIT . . .

Bishop's range is also impressive. He'll totally sell a frat house-style prank involving a tipped-over portable toilet in one scene, then totally engross us in a conversation where two cops discuss their true feelings about the general public in another. And he makes diverse scenes like these comfortably coexist with each other, creating a coherent whole.

Pacing, plotting, and the unfolding of scenes are all top-notch (making me think the author wouldn't make a bad director), but for me the characters really make the book shine. While there are definitely heroes and villains in the story, the good guys have flaws, fears, and some unlikable qualities, and the bad guys have style, wit, and/or understandable motivations. There are no cartoon characters in Hot Pursuit. Which isn't to say that there aren't some very, very funny scenes (the toilet scene was only one of many).
