Winter Kill by Josh Lanyon
Winter Kill - Josh Lanyon

***beware of spoilers until I get the spoiler tags cleaned up***


My reading slump continues.  Even Josh Lanyon has let me down!  I don't always love Josh's books, but usually it is because one of the main characters is too much of a dick.  I can, usually, count on the mysteries to make sense and the LEO characters to be reasonably intelligent and good at their jobs.  Not here.


Adam is both TSTL and psychic all at the same time. There are two points at which he figures something out with no rational basis I could see.  First, he see a picture of a young women when she was a girl, standing with two older boys.  At a glance Adam determines that the picture wasn't given to her, that she stole it, and that she has a crush on one of the boys.  Second, he meets the bad guy for the first time and 


immediately knows he is the Roadside Ripper, because he doesn't tell them his former trucking route and he is annoyed by Adam

(spoiler show)


But even though Adam is apparently psychic, he is also appallingly incompetent.  Before the case starts,


his team manages to short out a kidnapping victim's father's car, and Adam fails to stop one of the kidnappers from shooting the father, even though he is in the back seat of the car at the time

(spoiler show)


He also


gets kidnapped by the Roadside Ripper, even though he knows (psychically!) who it is.  He just opens the door and gets coshed

(spoiler show)


Rob isn't psychic - just incompetent and touchy.  For example, he gets mad at Adam for 

asking someone about his son's love life.  This is apparently so insensitive that Rob is going to leave Adam behind for further interviews - even though he didn't bother to tell Adam the son has been institutionalized.

(spoiler show)


Josh also sets up a romance that can't work, at least not yet, and then makes it work with some really improbable behavior. 


So, yeah, my reading slump continues.  Rats.

BBA Whisperer - Oh, BTW: Jerri Protects Her Hiney

Before we start into the new BBA Whisperer blog post in our "Oh, BTW..." series let us step back for a moment and take a look at Gail Enema Briggs and M.T. Mispuke Dismuke.


A 1* star review that caused Enema so much pain that she started a downvoting campaign. Amazon removed a truckload of sock puppet votes, the downvoting started again, Amazon removed sock votes, the review was downvoted... you get the picture.

BBA Whisperer: Super BBA Meltdown: Why We DonĀ“t Care


It's been nearly a month since our last post and a lot of people (mostly asshats) wondered why we were so quiet. It's not as if we might be busy living our lives. Anyway, the recent battle between Melissa Douthit/Athena Parker vs. Rick Carufel and Asshole92X excited, horrified, and terrified many. Our silence was viewed with suspicion by some (again mostly stupid butthurt babies). You wanted to know why we didn't blog about the every fart in this epic battle?
