HILL CLAN CROSS 3
Pitchork and Darnel burst through the scufed motel doorlike two barrels o buckshot. Using the daisy-patterned bedto divide the dealers rom the buyers, Pitchork buried a.45-caliber Colt in Karl’s peat moss unibrow with his righthand. Separated Irvine’s green eyes with the sawed-of .12-gauge in his le, pushed the two young men away romthe mattress, stopped them at a wall painted with nicotine,and shouted, “Drop the rucks, Karl!”Karl’s towline arms contorted in a broken epilepticrhythm. Dropped the two heavy military backpacks to thecarpet. Irvine stood with his chest rising and alling in ahyperventilated rush and, sounding like a southern Indianahick, he said, “Tis here is our deal.”Behind Pitchork, big brother Darnel kicked shut themotel door and corralled the two buyers to the right o thebed, into the nightstand, slapped a leather blackjack downonto Dodo Kirby’s widow’s peak.

I read this book right after "The Devil All The Time" and the two books together make for an unusual weekend of reading. That being said this book is fantastic. The stories slowly fuse together but are also outstanding on their own. A great dark book.

Very repititious book. The story all sounded quite similar with the same issues. The characters were all struggling with some sort of issee, I just did not care about any of them. We read this book as a bookclub selection and should have good discussion potential for us, but only because we will be discussing where these areas of Indiana are that these stories are based on. I live in Indiana and this book makes us look like a bunch of hilljacks. Believe me, we are not all like this.
