Dead Money Run

Dead Money Run (Lou Malloy Crime Series) - J. Frank James

 

Fifteen million dollars, fifteen years in prison, a murdered sister, and lots of bodies.

The day he got out of prison is when it all started.

Lou Malloy, now known as John Addams, is released from prison and goes on a killing spree as he looks for the money he hid and for his sister's killer.

Lou meets Hilary Kelly, and they team up​ with both of them doing the investigating and with Lou doing the killing.  We meet many unique characters.

DEAD MONEY RUN was fast-paced but a bit unbelievable how John acquired guns, found information, and always managed to get rid of people that were after him.

​I definitely wouldn't want to be on Lou Malloy's ​"​list.​"​  :)​  He had no qualms about maiming or killing people.​  There is a lot of gore.

​As DEAD MONEY RUN continued, Lou found out that his sister may have been killed for more than the money he stole, and she may have been involved in other things.

DEAD MONEY RUN wasn't gripping, but is a read that will keep you wondering where the search will lead and who else is involved in following and trying to kill Lou ​and Hilary and what the motives of these people are.  The ending was tense and quite good.

DEAD MONEY RUN needs a bit of polishing up in the believability factor, but I did enjoy ​DEAD MONEY RUN.  We have to realize, though, that it is a book and not real life, right?

Mr. James knows how to tell a good tale and keep you interested.   4/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation in return for an honest review.
