And, of course, it is personal, but Nina I liked! Ms. Hendricks' characters -- at least in first three -- I didn't.
  Off to re-read Woodrell.

************** There's a big difference between Nina and Hendricks's protagonists. Nina is a triumphant comic strip character. You can torture her all night long but give her an opening and she'll kick your ass, drag a Harley off the ground and ride it through a ring of fire. Hendricks's women come from Lou Ford's neighborhood, not Superman's.

And I second Woodrell. I read GIVE US A KISS about a year ago, and I've got TOMATO RED on the shelf tempting me. As much as I like Hendricks, Woodrell is a couple rungs up the ladder.
