Outside of a dog

I was pretty sure I was going to like Dennis Lehane’s new book, Live By Night, when I read this line on page 36, referring to a gangster who had strangled a guy:

“It had been over opium, a woman, or a German shorthaired pointer; to this day Joe had only heard rumors.”

You just don’t get that many GSP references in fiction.

Fortunately, by the time I reached the end of the book I had lots of other reasons to like it. You can read them in my review that ran in today’s Miami Herald.

Awesome German shorthaired pointer photograph by Mark Hedden, shot yesterday at Wahoo Key.
