This story was quirky and funny and supremely entertaining. The plot was fast paced and interesting without any plot holes. I was truly entertained from the first page to the last, I laughed out loud several times. While there were many characters between Marty’s family and the FBI it was easily distinguishable and I wasn’t ever left confused because the characters were well developed and relevant to the story.
This is my first read by Jacob Flores but it won’t be the last.
