“Banyan Street” by Jonathan Herbert review by Morgan Maine

Jonathan Herbert made Butch and all of the other characters come alive in this Hemingway Esc style of storytelling. The pace of this book will move quickly while there is a murderer to find, a girl to fall in love with and a crime to solve all right smack in the middle of a hurricane.

This book smacks of a conspiracy against Butch as he tries to find who murdered his father. You practically get soaked as he describes the hurricane pounding the island. Get this book and let the pages turn you. You will taste the cigar smoke in the tavern and hear the cue ball kiss the 8 into the pocket as the lights flicker on and off when the hurricane crashes into the island.

The intrigue is intense.. Maybe you should read it with a friend.

Get a copy of Banyan Street written by Jonathan Herbert, finger nails are so overrated.
