“The Devil You Know” by Jo Goodman

I have read quite a few books by Jo Goodman and have enjoyed each and every one.  “The Devil You Know” is no different.  I love the way Ms. Goodman develops the characters in her novels.  The dialogue is refreshing and humorous and is what makes the book so easy to read.  I feel that I truly know each character by the end of the book, what makes them tick, and what they are looking for.  The drama that unfolds keeps a reader’s interest throughout and the pace is never-ending.

I enjoyed reading about Israel McKenna and Wilhelmina Pancake and it definitely piqued my interest in the previous McKenna novel, “This Gun for Hire”.  I was thrown by the name “Pancake” and wished that it was not used for this novel.  For some reason it gave the book a silly inference.

I received a complimentary print copy of this book by NightOwlReviews.com in return for my honest review.
