KAT AND MOUSE: GUNS FOR HIRE

Hot. Damn.

By Eli James, editor

Oct 8, 2009: I enjoyed Kat and Mouse. Fast. Funny. Lots of blood between paragraphs. Read it while liveblogging at The Dispatch. Kept me entertained.

Abner Senires has the skills. The chops, as they say in the biz. Writing reads snappy. Characters a little on the diptzy side, though. Lots of action. Good light reading. Very little commas.

Hard to imagine it as a book.
