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.
