    Just read The Grifters.

    Read quickly enough although I kept wondering who the book was really about.

    I’m wondering, though, if I’m alone in thinking the ending lacked proper foundation(s).


    The Killer Inside Me was “pretty darn good.”

    The Grifters reminds me more of a novel written to reach the word count required by a publishing contract. Once he got the “magic number” of words, he bailed out.


    Was the movie any better?
