    • Fresh out of prison for stealing a load of valuable cacti, Jimmy Coates borrows 6,000 from a loan shark and blows it on a losing bet Shortly thereafter, he also loses his job as a performer at the Old Wild West Park in Phoenix when he fails a drug test in rather spectacular fashion.Ray Harp, the loan shark, is hard on Jimmy s trail, looking to make an example of him Harp s right hand man, Aaron Limbe, has a personal score to settle with Jimmy whom he blames for getting him kicked off the Phoenix [...]


    • An absolute gem of a literary crime novel, The Long Fall is an expertly concocted cocktail of character development, tight plotting and musical language that explores deep themes of discontent and desire to change It somehow manages the trick of not wasting a single word while rising high above the Patterson writing waterline It has all the tone and discipline of high literature but skips the flat affect less affectations of the serious MFA grad style novels, balancing wit and generous color wit [...]


    • So I feel a little weird reviewing a book written by one of my former professors, but I thought I d give it a shot anyway At first, I wasn t really into it The first few pages tripped me up rather badly, in fact I couldn t quite get my bearings as to where Jimmy was and what he was doing And then there was a long passage that was all commas and tons of metaphors I felt completely out of breath by the time I reached the end of it which was the intended effect, so, you know, well done I have to ad [...]


    • HmmmI have to admit the author did a fine job of developing the characters, it was generally easy to like well dislike them I am not so sure that there was a likable character in the book at all Most of them were victims of society or someone else s actions, a hard childhood or a stifling marriage Really No characters in the book that actually had any kind of moral compass This was a dark book, and I wish I had listened to my intuition that by 25% into the book that it wasn t going to improve I [...]


    • Loved this book First I ever heard of the author Thanks, TyrusBooks for practically giving it away, while I only paid 99 cents, I ll gladly pay full price to read Down and out loser, just out of prison, get rich quick scheme disappeared on a bad bet at the track lands Jimmy deep in debt to the local loan shark His brother wrote him off as a loser, and cheated him out of his inheritance Jimmy s life spirals away, into mayhem and murder, but always with a smart mouth and a good line More than any [...]


    • If there is one thing in life I cannot stand it is a Moocher Someone who likes to take from others without one thought or care in the world I thought this is what Jimmy was I think the author did a great job developing characters but as for the story it was predictable and the characters were not likeable at all This was an easy read and I liked it but could not find anything that made me fall in love or want to go read another by this author.


    • The author expects the reader to root for a small time ex con who bungles and burgles his way through life, pisses off the wrong people, and has a torrid affair with his brother s wife That s a lot too ask, because the main character, Jimmy Coates, is the epitome of a LOSER Yet, Kostoff pulls it off without a hitch This was a fun read.


    • I downloaded this free ebook to my Nook library in March 2012 It is a noir novel with characters who just can t catch a break I recommend it only to readers who enjoy the noir genre as the author aspires to write like El Leonard.


    • You know I kinda liked it I think this guy can write Just not enough story Sorta, like building a really good foundation for a pale pink, three bedroom, two car garage, stucco in the suburbs.You kinda admire the intent, but you don t truly get the sense of it.


    • One of those chances people take on new authors, and I wasn t disappointed The combination of a tightly wound plot and honest characterization along with a really biting prose made it so I could barely put this thing down Great read, will definitely be looking for from Kostoff.







    • I was pleasantly surprised The story had enough humor to make me chuckle a few times, enough drama to move the story forward and enough action to keep me interested.
