Jim Nesbit's "Lethal Injection" is an amazing tour de force of a crime thriller. His writing is rich and layered. The story moves along at breackneck speed.It is a book that is probably unlike anything else you have ever read, beginning with an in-depth scene taking the reader step by step through the final hours of Mencken as his sentence is finally carried out. They are a frenzied, wild last few hours filled with irony, violence, and characters.But the focus is not really on Mencken. It's Royce, Dr Royce, Dr. Death, who is the star of this show as the doctor wonders if Mencken really did it and delves into his life in an attempt to figure out the truth. This is the doctor's stunning descent into a world he could barely have imagined, a glimpse perhaps into the gates of hell.Whose life though is crazier Mencken's or Royce's? Royce is stuck in a bitter, hateful marriage where they have to go shopping for new dishes every few months. His career is wasting away and he took on a contract no one else wanted. Is he a righteous man searching for justice or, in the end, is he just another crazed addict trapped in a world of lust and greed?Life is a game of poker and you gotta deal with the hand you're dealt.
