Tall Man in Ray-Bans by Joseph Flynn - E Book Review

Tall Man in Ray-Bans (A John Tall Wolf Novel Book 1) Kindle Edition by Joseph Flynn - E Book Review      

Tall Man in Ray-Bans has everything a good thriller and mystery book needs, from a twisting plot that is impossible to guess in advance to characters with real depth. However, what really sets this book apart is the Texas settings of the book.

While exploring the dry bed of Lake Travis in Austin, Texas, two kids stumble upon a skeleton. A few clues seem to indicate that the skeleton is all that remained from long time fugitive Randy Bear Heart. Randy disappeared many years ago after robbing banks, killing cops and eve a couple of reservation cops. The suspect identity of the owner of the skeleton means quite a number of agencies are called to investigate. The FBI wants to find out how Bear Heart avoided capture for twenty five years and why someone put him in the lake wearing chains.

The book is filled with mysticism, making Tall Man in Ray-Bans a must-read for all fans of this type of book. In addition, anyone who loves the True Detective TV series will find this book extremely enjoyable.

This book is another example of Joseph Flynn's best writing characteristics. He makes the reader laugh, cry or be scared and he is doing it all with undeniable class and aplomb. We can only hope we are going to see more novels with such quirky sense of humor. 

Another interesting thing about the book is the protagonist. There aren't many books with Native American main characters, which is a great choice for the book. In addition, all the characters in Tall Man in Ray-Bans are really charismatic and well developed and rounded. This is something that makes the story extremely entertaining and proves that Joseph Flynn is one of the most talented writers nowadays.

The one thing that could have been better is the book's length. At 189 pages the readers get the unshakable feeling that the story could have been longer and more elaborate, allowing the readers to learn more of the very interesting characters.
