    ePUB Floaters ePUB È ☆ 1st grade.co ☆ floaters mobile, Floaters ePUBThis is the last of Wambaugh’s books that I have read It was the worst one that I ever read A complete disappointment I will always consider him to be one of if not the best cop writers I wish I just left this one alone I don’t think I even smiled let alone laughed Laughter is a hallmark of Wambaugh’s writing If you are a fan stay away from this one Don

    ePUB Floaters ePUB È ☆ 1st grade.co ☆ floaters mobile, Floaters ePUBA readable but completely forgettable novel As a person who remembers well that America's cup being a kiwi it was interesting reading a novel set in San Diego at that time Unfortunately it all felt a bit meaningless in the end the crime just fizzled out The characters were somewhat memorable

    ePUB Floaters ePUB È ☆ 1st grade.co ☆ floaters mobile, Floaters ePUBSome novels are interesting when they’re first released because they deal with a contemporary event that’s fresh in the reader’s mind Unfortunately these novels do NOT age well as reader’s forget the significance of the event or never heard of the event Such is the case with FloatersI remembered all the hoopla intrigue spying etc surrounding Dennis Conner and the America’s Cup The news coverage was intense It’s against this background that Joseph Wambaugh based his novel

    ePUB Floaters ePUB È ☆ 1st grade.co ☆ floaters mobile, Floaters ePUBWitty commentary on former days of Americas Cup racing and SoCal culture Through earthy character the author zings a culture where when you dig deep you find shallow Not to be taken seriously this world revolves around sex and alcohol A reader is almost certain to hear several new colorful and imaginitive expressions for masturbationTwo murders anchor this balloon and keep one in suspense until a satisfying resolution along with the social commentary the uality of dialog is another reason to read this book

    ePUB Floaters ePUB È ☆ 1st grade.co ☆ floaters mobile, Floaters ePUBI enjoyed the book but I felt that the ending wasn’t as satisfying as I would have liked it to be For me that’s the difference between 4 and 5 stars I don’t want to use spoilers so I won’t say anything than that about the story itself The writing was good the characters were believable and the story line moved along well Even though I didn’t like the ending you should read this for yourself and make up your own mind
