Beluga by Rick Gavin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Beluga by Rick Gavin is the second book by the author ex-cop/repo man Nick Reid and his group of acquaintances. In Beluga, Nick and Desmond reluctantly invest in a scheme for Larry, now known as Beluga LaMonte. While the idea was to steal and resell tires, Larry gets Nick and Desmond into a mess that only they, with the help of local police buddies, can clean up.
The book is a fast paced Delta noir, which makes for a fast read. The crime and violence in the book are perfectly punctuated by humor. Recommended for anyone that likes a good crime novel with heart.
