Review: 99 PERCENT KILL by Doug Richardson
If you've a taste for dark, gritty, hard-driving, cut-to-the-bone Hollywood--L. A. Noir, 99 PERCENT KILL delivers, to the max. Throughout the book, I kept imagining scenes playing out on the silver screen--and then discovered the author is an acclaimed screenwriter. Protagonist Lucky Dee [often not lucky at all] is a sometimes sheriff's deputy for L. A. County, who gets into private investigation at the bequest of a valued friend. On the surface, the quest is simple: locate the fifteen-year-old runaway daughter of a wealthy Milwaukee businessman. Not so simple--like kachina dolls, there are secrets inside secrets inside riddles. The climax and denouement are spectacular and unforgettable. Luckily for readers, Lucky Dey is expected to reappear.
