Some fellows can say things in the wry way and force one to chuckle, despite the context:
WICHITA, Kan. –
Darnell says his trunk full of things, is all he has left from his home. He says he and his friends were playing cards in the basement Friday night when things got out of control. Neighbors said they heard loud voices arguing and then more noise.
“I heard 4-5 gunshots after that,” said neighbor, George Neill.
Police say when officers arrived, Darnell’s house was engulfed in flames.
Not difficult to imagine the emotions involved there.
I’ve finished Lowell’’s Traders Tales series. I was a bit put out during reiterations of previous books and it spoiled things just a mite. I realize that when one writes a series continuity is important, especially when dragging alone many characters over a writing period of years.
The reader isn’t so lucky, some times, when they read the books en-mas as I did. Things remain fresh in ones eye and repeating spoils the story. I generally enjoyed the light reading however. Enough so I cast out of mind those hiccups and got on with it.
I’d read the last book, Owners Share, before and will read it again before I put the series away, just ot get the feeling of the whole series.
