Terrier Rand
review 1: Terrier Rand comes home to Long Island from his job in Colorado, because his brother Collie is scheduled to die in prison. All the men in the Rand family are named for dogs. This is a dysfunctional family like you have never seen. THey steal, cheat and kill. The mother is okay--seemingly clueless. The father collects post war Japanese ceramic figures. The sister might survive okay if she can leave her petty criminal boy friend behind. I almost gave up on this before I got 50 pages into it.
review 2: This was my first Piccirilli book and what a great introduction to someone who's a new author to me. I'm not a huge fan of the crime genre, but Piccirilli's writing is so good I was glued to the pages and really tore through this book. ("It is not the tale, b
... moreut he who tells it.") I loved the criminal family and the general dark tone of the book, the main character is truly a haunted man and his story is told in such a way as to really inspire sympathy for him. On to the next Piccirilli book! less
