James Harper describes Kentucky Vice as a suspense crime thriller. That is an accurate description with an emphasis on suspense. Although it is part of a series titled Evan Buckley Thrillers Book 2, I found no problems appreciating this novel without having read Book 1 first. Amazon sells the book for USD 2.99 or offers it as a read-for-free on Kindle Unlimited. After reading Book 2, I want to read Book 3 because (surprise) there is a cliffhanger at the end of Book 2. This is in no way a spoiler. Kentucky Vice is a self-contained pleasant reading experience all by itself with many moving parts (subplots). But there is that one, small unresolved matter that I want to know about. Bring on Book 3.
