The Latest Pick

Kyle Says
As summer begins, we usually like to get transported to another place (aka summer vacation). Allen Morris Jones, who I had the pleasure of seeing at a speaking engagement in Bozeman, transports readers into the world of Ted Sweeney, a former New York mobster who has since been relocated to Southwest Montana (“relocated” as in “witness protection”). I never knew I wanted to dive deeper into the mind of a mobster, nor did I ever realize how fascinating it would be to experience a character with half a New Yorker brain and half a Montanan brain. No matter how you interpret the title (I interpret it as a man whose life is like a strong drink - one that’s not smooth, but definitely on the rocks), this is a sure-read to kick off the summer.
