My Impressions: Witty, great plot, interesting characters, government corruption, murder, cover-ups.
Sam Price – Knoxberg TN. Police Sargent. Good looking, conniver who walks both sides of the law.
Kim Price – Sam's wife. A wife any sensible man would cherish.
Phil Price – Police Chief, Sam's brother. A good man who is always ready to profit from shadowy deals.
Stan - Businessman and close friend of Chief Price. Involved in shady and illegal ventures.
Gina - The police chief's secretary. A good woman who falls in love and bed with a married man.
No Place in Heaven is full of cursing and sexual situations. If those issues offend you, don't read it.
This is a serious story showcasing characters we all know and associate with. Some are crooks, a few are honest (think priest). The primary character is a serial cock hound who has always routinely cheated on his wife.
There are quite a few additional and interesting characters besides the main characters. They are fascinating and their individuality is well written so they standout and are memorable.
There is a lot of sex talk but no graphic porn descriptions.
Knoxberg is portrayed as a typical small city where the local politicians are mostly crooks who pass laws to benefit themselves over the other residents.
One of the story's greatest flaws is where scene changes begin. It often takes three or four sentences before the reader learns the identity of the character or characters involved.
The editing and sentence structure are mostly good with minor issues.
Character development for everyone is good.
Some details are sketchy especially for some of the financial shenanigans.
The plot is complex and has as many twists and turns and ups and downs as a winding mountain road full of hairpin curves.
The writing style is consistent and easy to read and follow except for the numerous scene changes.
I thoroughly enjoyed No Place in Heaven and recommend it highly.
