Review and Giveaway of Dead Money Run by J. Frank James

Fifteen million dollars, fifteen years in prison, a murdered sister, and lots of bodies.

The day he got out of prison is when it all started.

Lou Malloy, now known as John Addams, is released from prison and goes on a killing spree as he looks for the money he hid and for his sister's killer.

Lou meets Hilary Kelly, and they team up​ with both of them doing the investigating and with Lou doing the killing.  We meet many unique characters.

DEAD MONEY RUN was fast-paced but a bit unbelievable how John acquired guns, found information, and always managed to get rid of people that were after him.

​I definitely wouldn't want to be on Lou Malloy's ​"​list.​"​  :)​  He had no qualms about maiming or killing people.​  There is a lot of gore.

​As DEAD MONEY RUN continued, Lou found out that his sister may have been killed for more than the money he stole, and she may have been involved in other things.

DEAD MONEY RUN wasn't gripping, but is a read that will keep you wondering where the search will lead and who else is involved in following and trying to kill Lou ​and Hilary and what the motives of these people are.  The ending was tense and quite good.

DEAD MONEY RUN needs a bit of polishing up in the believability factor, but I did enjoy ​DEAD MONEY RUN.  We have to realize, though, that it is a book and not real life, right?

Mr. James knows how to tell a good tale and keep you interested.   4/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation in return for an honest review.

  3. Hi Elizabeth,

    I have also read and thoroughly enjoyed this book, despite the preponderance of violence and killing it involved. It was all quite in keeping with the fast-paced, ever-changing landscape of the story.

    I wish I was as organised as you in publishing my review posts, however there just never seems to be enough hours in the day. By the time I get in at night, have done a few jobs, prepared and cleared the dinner, it is generally about 10pm, so you can imagine that after just a few minutes, I am falling asleep at the keyboard.

    Catching up with your excellent post has spurred me on to get my backside into gear and get my review up on line!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I hope that all is well with you :)


    1. I know what you mean about not enough time, but it is just my personality, though, to get things done and to be organized. :)

      I am glad you enjoyed this book too.

      Thanks for stopping, Yvonne.
