    ePUB bricksnboho.co.uk ´ Lizard Skin Epub ✓ lizard epub, skin mobile, Lizard Skin PDFI picked this novel up in the Salt Lake City Airport in August of 1993 I was on my way to Germany where I would spend the next three years courtesy of the United States Army It's a long plane ride from Salt Lake City to Frankfurt Germany with a layover in St Louis I read this novel on the way there and I have read it a couple times since It's remained one of my favorites and the very battered paperback copy is still in my libraryLike all of Stroud's books this one is strong on atmosphere character description and action pieces It's a little different for Stroud in that it's his usual police procedural novelmystery meeting up with a Robin Cook medical mystery novel To be honest I didn't see that part of the story coming and I know some of have been critical of this but I didn't mind it Oh and there are definite aspects of the Western as well The protagonist is a Montana State Trooper after all and the story i

    ePUB bricksnboho.co.uk ´ Lizard Skin Epub ✓ lizard epub, skin mobile, Lizard Skin PDFGreat book except for the end Lizard Skin features veteran Montana state trooper Beau MacAllister a wise cracking good ol' boy who has great instincts and is not too concerned with protocol Beau is called to a truck stop to stop a robbery in progress but the whole thing seems fishy to him and he ends up shooting the supposed victim in the butt during a 3 way fight between Beau the victim and several Indians using compound bows Beau suspects something is amiss and tugs on this loose thread until he finds the conspiracyThe characters in this story are well written Beau is particularly well developed especially for a cop novel The DA character Vanessa Ballard is uite memorable and feels like a real person rather than a caricature Even McAllister's nemesis Dwight Hogelan shows signs of gr
