Lou Malloy: The Run Begins explains to us why Lou ended up in jail. It was a fast and easy to read book with excellent use of words and energetic scenes.
After reading the first book, I was sure I had to read the prequel. The characters are complex, the plot is both entertaining and flawless.
I'm sure you will like this book if you have read anything by J. Frank James. If not, you should read it :)
