Flanagan’s By The Sea by Chris Fraser: Book Review

Dicky has a problem, well maybe more than one, but the first is a doozy. His dad needs a favor and that means going to the prison for the details. And when the favor turns out to be a way to get his dad out of prison, Dicky has to do whatever it takes. flanagan's by the sea, chris fraser, california, drugs, prison, surfing, noir

His family is the definition of disfunction, and Dicky is no exception. The twists in the story take him on a journey that started years ago and seems to be finally coming to an end. Whether that end is a place where Dicky can start over, or a place where everyone dies, is the question that keeps pulling you through the story.

A definite noir take on a mystery, with a broken hero and a cast of family members who are reliable – well that’s not necessarily a good thing. Being reliable for screwing up isn’t what most people want.

I recommend this book if you like a bunch of characters who are trying to do the right thing, they just have a different idea of right.
