Dennis Tafoya’s THE POOR BOY’S GAME

Frannie Mullen is a US Marshall. After a bungled operation she takes full responsibility for any mistakes that were made and quits her job. As she tries to sort out her life and help her sister recover from another round of rehab, the father she thought was long out of her life returns. Her father, Patrick Mullen, was a thug and enforcer for a local trade union whose violent job was also part of a violent life at home. Now on the run from prison Patrick cuts a violent path toward his two daughters. Looking for revenge, but revenge for what and for whom is a very long list.

Tafoya’s action scenes are simply sublime, in particular the opening scene of the novel. But what really sets Tafoya apart from the pack is the heart he brings to his stories and his characters which he does once again here. Emotion is what drives people and that is what is at the core of this brilliant novel. The emotions that drive us and the damage they do along the way. Tafoya captures this brilliantly in a fast-moving, intense page-turner that will keep you totally gripped and double guessing right until the final pages.
