Teaser Tuesday - John Dufresne's I Don't Like Where This Is Going

The Ramble
I had just finished the first Wylie Melville book, No Regrets, Coyote, when I dived right into this one (you can read my ramble HERE).

Do NOT read this one first. You'll get confused. You might get mad. You may end up feeling like you need a therapist. I know that a lot of series have installments that can pretty much stand on their own, but this isn't one of those series. Without the character and plot knowledge of the first you really wouldn't like where this one is going because you would feel like you were missing something. (And, obviously, you would be -- an entire book's worth.)

If you HAVE read the first book then you're due for a treat because this one is even more jaw-dropping and head-scratching and infuriating and laugh-out-louding than the first. Several of the secondary characters from No Regrets are back and hugely expanded upon -- including one in particular that I really thought was just going to be a "one-and-done" character. I've definitely been pleasantly surprised even though some things happen that have made me want to throw the book across the room in disgust (luckily, I value my phone and tablet far too much to actually have done so).

While the first installment takes place largely in south Florida, I Don't Like Where This Is Going is mostly set in Las Vegas. I'm not sure where the next one may end up but, as a series goes, I definitely do like where this is going.
