An Honest Review for NetGalley
Now a motorcycle club is usually synonymous with seriously bad guys. Drug running. Gun running. People smuggling and brothels.
So can there be good clubs? Well if they are for recreation, but the one n this story doesn’t seem to be.
This story doesn’t make it clear just what this club does and yur imagination is left to ponder and wonder – they don’t want drugs on their turf but do they do other bad things? And do they smuggle drugs on other clubs’ turfs?
This left me confused and conflicted about the story.
I always love a woman who can fend for herself and who can take on unsavoury (but not exactly illegal) work because it pays the bills. But here the job was ok but I wasn’t at all sure about the boyfriend. Yes an alpha male on a motorbike is seriously hot but?
And a member of a club with a nice wooden cabin and dog?
Just who was this guy and what was this business about the club and him being an enforcer for it?
Now the Chavez brothers – Hector and Carlos I can quite believe in. But please note: Hector Chavez was a very famous person – a Mexican politician and Carlos is a classical musician, so better names could have been chosen.
I know quite a bit about the Colombian drug wars as 1. I have visited Colombia and Medellin where most of the violence happened; (but are now in much safer condition and very lovely, see photos below; and 2. I am watching Narcos and getting a dramatised history. I know some Colombians quite well and the country is lovely – away from the jungle. There is a wonderful National Park across the Andes which looks like Switzerland and Medellin is known as being in a state of permanent Spring due to the temperature and lack of seasons. Very pleasant town now.
