As a part of our effort to showcase new authors on our website, we are using the FREE publicity section to publish one featured review from an author every Friday to help authors find new readers, and readers new books.
This week, we are featuring author Jesse James Kennedy from the Crime Novel genre
Jesse James Kennedy is an American novelist and poet born in St. Louis Missouri. After a brief stint in the Army, he spent a good decade running wild, reading and sharpening his writing skills. His first novel, Missouri Homegrown, was published by Perfect Crime Books to strong national reviews from Publishers Weekly and Booklist. His second novel, Tijuana Mean, has been accepted by the same publisher and is due to be released in late 2018. These days he can usually be found somewhere in the rural Midwest writing and consuming copious amounts of bottom shelf whiskey.
The full review is available on this link:
“Mean as ever . . . stepping over the bodies—a lot of them. . . . Kennedy’s involvement with his material has deepened. In heightened language, he explores the odd bond between cops and criminals, the poisonous tension between father and son. There’s a sixties vibe, too, with LSD visions and the Grateful Dead on car radios. These are gripping, beautifully executed scenes, and there’s still plenty of McCray business-as-usual: robbing corpses, chopping off arms, pushing lit cigarettes into open wounds. . . . How do McCrays handle competitors? “We kill them.” The American Library Association’s Booklist
