    PDF myportal.pro ñ Sideswipe Epub Õ sideswipe download, Sideswipe KindleHoke Moseley truly is a one of a kind protagonist and Sideswipe is his most uniuely Willefordian case yet A detective novel where the crime occurs in the last chapter that alternates between the plotting of a heist and the workings of a policeman are not exactly rare you might say but in the hands of Charles Willeford this generic plot takes on a whole new lifeInstead of intricate details of who goes where and when a recce of the bank in uestion and potential getaway routes led by a criminal mastermind we are treated to the chess like machinations of a criminal psychopath as seen through the eyes of a clueless Florida retireeAnd anybody who's p

    PDF myportal.pro ñ Sideswipe Epub Õ sideswipe download, Sideswipe KindleGreat stuff You get the sense that Willeford almost resented the borderline commercial success of his Hoke Moseley books and enjoyed rubbing unsuspecting readers' faces in the dirt not to mention screwing with his publishers

    PDF myportal.pro ñ Sideswipe Epub Õ sideswipe download, Sideswipe KindleThe Hoke Moseley novels are about a detective but they are not novels in the detective genre Charles Willeford never dangles any clues or misdirection in front of the readers and the actual crime that needs to be solved doesn't happen until the tail end of the book Instead he holds the readers interest with remarkably vivid portraits of his characters various locales in Miami area and of course the themes he brings up How easily decent but gullable

    PDF myportal.pro ñ Sideswipe Epub Õ sideswipe download, Sideswipe KindleI almost felt like I was reading a crime fiction novel written by Raymond Carver Melancholic crime fiction? I don't know if SIDESWIPE can be classified as a crime fiction novel After Willeford achieved success with MIAMI BLUES he really cranked it up a few notches wrote the novels that he wanted to write Hoke Moseley is the exact opposite of a tough cop He seems to be resigned to his fate stops talking to his police partner and daughter and moves back in with his father who gives him a job managing a vacation resort sort of place But Moseley springs into action when a suave smooth talking barbarian carries out violent robberies of department stores The character of the barbarian is described from the point of view of an aging middle class drone who finances his most am

    PDF myportal.pro ñ Sideswipe Epub Õ sideswipe download, Sideswipe KindleSuch sadness I have only one Hoke Moseley book to go The late and great Charles Willeford passed away after 4 of this series leaving behind a magnificent legacy His genius lies in the minutiae of his character's development In the Hoke Moseley series he employs the brilliant techniue of alternating each chapter between the daily lives of Hoke and his immediate family and colleagues and the villains as they plan their crime As such the crimes don't actually occur until late in each novel finishing with explosive endingsSo far this is the best of the series even better than the first Miami Blues It is so great to read of Miami in the 1980s without the pastel cladded shallowness depicted in Miami Vice His characters are the down outs the losers the never weres and are written is such a beautiful matter of fact way I can see why guys like El Leonard and James Lee Burke cited him as such a major influence His work spanned 40 plus years

    PDF myportal.pro ñ Sideswipe Epub Õ sideswipe download, Sideswipe KindleI'm not sure what's going on but I think I've started to develop a little crush on Hoke Moseley I know right? I mean he pees his pants within the first ten pages of this book But I feel such a strong affection toward him for some reasonThe structure of this book is similar to Miami Blues in that every other chapter is about Hoke and the odd ones deal with another storyline about a criminal sociopath Troy who isn't Junior but might as well be I completely loved the way it all came together at the end It's shitballs crazy awesome And I love how even though throughout the plots of these books Hoke's life is fairly shitty at the end he gets a nice little pick me up and you're ready to move on thinking the old guy is going to be okayMy favorite thing about Willeford is the little details The fact that Hoke tries to cheat at Monopoly His recipe for beef stew I love it
