Wounded Animals - Jim Heskett
Wounded Animals is the first novel in the Whistleblower Trilogy. This book was free when I downloaded it. It's now 99 cents for the kindle.This story started out good, with Tucker Candle trying to drink away his sorrows. Candle's company is closing up their Colorado location and Candle is about to be out of a job. Then Candle notices Kareem turning water to wine. Kareem gives Candle a cryptic warning to not go to Dallas, but Candle can't find a way to get out of it. Unfortunately the story was downhill from there. Evil bad guys, who weren't that evil, and senseless killings that remained senseless, even after the book was over. The ending was like the story ran out of steam and then nudged into a wall. The other books in the trilogy may flesh out this tale, but I won't be reading them. Barely recommended.
