Dead Money Run is the first book in the Lou Malloy Crime Series. Lou Malloy learns of his sister's death right before he is released from prison, having served 15 years for the theft of $15 million from an Indian casino. He wants two things: to keep the $15 million, which no one has been able to find, and to track down and punish whoever killed his sister. Lou Malloy teams up with Hilary Kelly, a private investigator. In no time, Lou has found the hidden $15 million, recovered guns and ammunition hidden with the money, and murdered two low-level mobsters and fed them to the crocodiles. As the body count rises, the story grows more complex and his sister's death becomes more mysterious.
Five Boundless Stars
This book was really good. It was action packed and had me completely engrossed on page one. It follows Lou who has been in prison for 15 years for stealing a large amount of money. Now he is out and searching for his sisters killer. With the help of Hilary, a person he never thought he would trust, he is on the search while others are on the search for him and the missing money. I have to say Lou is a character I was surprised that I liked. He has a rough face he puts on to the world, but I liked him. He was tough, but throughout he starts to show a bit of a softer side, or at least that's how I viewed it. I definitely enjoyed this book. It was written well and was very intriguing. It was packed full of action from beginning to end, which made for an all around good book.
