New Year, More Reading: This Time It's Tony Dunbar's Crooked Man in the Tubby Dubonnet Series

Last night I read book one of Tony Dunbar's Tubby Dubonnet series, entitled Crooked Man. This was his amazing debut novel. My only drawback to his stories is the sad lack of seafood in my house (and my proximity to New Orleans, as I live in DFW). He described more than a few Cajun meals that had me drooling. No matter. I will read this man's words even if my cupboards are bare and no excellent Cajun fare is within one hundred miles of me.

This initial offering in his series is a great read with some truly brilliant twists to efficiently tie up all the plotlines into two endings: a main one and a quickie secondary finale as well.

Have you ever read a book that made you question your own art, your own creativity? Tony Dunbar does that to me. Regardless I won't quit consuming his works nor will I stop creating my own. He just raises the bar a good bit.
