Blurb: A tomcat, a psychopath, and a psychic walk into the desert to rescue the men they love…. Can everybody make it out with their skin intact?
PI Jackson Rivers and Defense Attorney Ellery Cramer have barely recovered from last November, when stopping a serial killer nearly destroyed Jackson in both body and spirit.
But their previous investigation poked a new danger with a stick, forcing Jackson and Ellery to leave town so they can meet the snake in its den.
Jackson Rivers grew up with the mean streets as a classroom and he learned a long time ago not to give a damn about his own life. But he gets a whole new education when the enemy takes Ellery. The man who pulled his shattered pieces from darkness and stitched them back together again is in trouble, and Jackson’s only chance to save him rests in the hands of fragile allies he barely knows.
It’s going to take a little bit of luck to get these Few Good Fish out alive!
Review: I like this line from Amy Lane’s Author’s Note: “Don’t watch it for factual accuracy-trust me, it will only disappoint.” If you do watch it for factual accuracy, you will miss out on all the fun and excitement!
Ellery Cramer is keeping the bargain he made with a higher power when Jackson Rivers almost died…again. Jackson has gone with Ellery to the synagogue, because he really cares about and respects Ellery, but Jackson waits outside, thinking about what his life could have been and how, with Ellery, he’s found the basics—emotional safety in every day that passes. While conversing with a strange gentleman outside the synagogue, Jackson spies a suspicious young man heading towards Ellery’s car, twelve-year-old foster kid, Anthony Cooper.
With Jackson being injured and Ellery taking on a new client, Janie Isaacson, a connection leads to their arch nemesis, Commander Karl Lacey. There’s only one thing Ellery and Jackson can do—go on vacation. Or, not so much. They’re on their way to Victoriana to meet up with Ace Atchison and Sonny Daye, two men who can give them more insight into what they are up against. Ace, not totally trusting Jackson, sets up a time and place to meet. Jackson really needs Sonny’s help, and as they get more familiar with each other, all hell breaks loose at Walmart. Jackson finds his allies in Sonny and Ernie, as their men are in danger, and they team up to save them from a deadly situation.
A Few Good Fish is a great read and a page turner! It’s packed with lots of danger, explosive action, suspense and snark. A dangerous military officer coming back onto the scene with men trained as killing machines, was scary and brilliant. But, I don’t think this is over yet. There’s so much love and heartwarming and heart-wrenching moments between Jackson, Ellery, and Ellery’s mother, Lucy Satan, and there’s a great cast of characters that return, including Jade, Mike, Kaden, Ellery’s dad, and a three-legged tomcat. I really liked the pairings and the contrasts and similarities of the couples in the book: Jackson and Ellery, Ace Atchison and Sonny Daye, and the new addition of Lee Burton and Ernie Caulfield.
To get the feel again for Jackson and Ellery’s relationship, I revisited A Fish Out of Water and Red Fish Dead Fish, and they were even better the second time around. They got me revved up for this book, and I’m excited about how it ended and hope Amy Lane continues with Ellery and Jackson’s new venture, and finds a way to bring Ace and Sonny as well as Burton and Ernie into another exciting novel.
