No muss, no fuss; Easy Money After reading Jenny Siler�s most recent novel, SHOT, I could not wait to read her first two novels: EASY MONEY and ICED

No muss, no fuss; Easy Money. After reading Jenny Siler�s most recent novel, SHOT, I could not wait to read her first two novels: EASY MONEY and ICED. I just finished EASY MONEY and I must say that it is interesting to see the development of a writer. In MONEY, Siler has created another hard-boiled gun toting take no crap heroine who is innately the equal of any man and smarter.

I won't be coming back here. - Jenny Siler, Easy Money. Shelves: 1audio, 2fiction, mystery-thriller, did-not-finish. I tried, but this was a no-go. Too many sour notes & holes.

Jenny Siler, Betty Bobbitt. The daughter of a Florida drug runner, Alison Kerry lives from day to day, in seedy motels, surviving on cigarettes, Wild Turkey, and the adrenaline rush of danger. Allie is a runner and her latest job should go down easy: easy pickup, easy payoff - easy money. But in a bar outside Seattle, everything goes horribly wrong. Allie finds her contact with a bullet in his brain and a government-issued Colt in his jacket. Suddenly Allie has a killer on her trail, and the computer disk he killed for burning a hole in her pocket.

Allie Kerry doesn't ask questions. She doesn't know what's in the packages she delivers for a living-and she doesn't want to know

Allie Kerry doesn't ask questions. For the readers who put Deja Dead at the top, a gritty, gratifying debut. Just off Bainbridge Island, in early evening, a former top-ranking CIA officer mysteriously drowns.

Courier Allie Kerry embarks on a run for her life when her contact turns up dead in the bathroom and the computer disk she is supposed to deliver turns out to be the key to a deadly conspiracy dating back to the Vietam War.
  • Alison Kerry is our protagonist, and she makes her living as a courier hauling drugs and other contraband from one crook to the next. Her father is also in the drug business, as is his best buddy, and his girl friend.....etc. An honest guy sneaks into the book, but the author does him in quickly so that he doesn't make the other characters look too tawdry.
    So, what's our Key West, trailer trash heroine (with the attractive feminine nickname of "Al") up to? She's moving a computer disc with some Vietnam secrets from one bad guy to the next, and she runs into trouble. There are three ho hum action scenes in the book separated by great gobs of filler.
    I didn't care about any of the following elements of the book: the heroine; her friends; her family; the tedious, hackneyed Viet Nam atrocity plot; the soporific action scenes; or the writing. This, indeed, is one of those books that once you put it down, you will have trouble picking it up again.

  • If you want to send a computer disc with Vietnam secrets why not US Mail or Fedex - or just telephone the New York Times? If you think you're being framed for murder why not get a lawyer?Flashbacks to cobble the plot and explain obscure motives. But she is a great heroine and the action scenes keep you on the edge of your seat.

  • Alison Kerry's childhood was anything but normal. Raised in the Florida Keys by her father, a Vietnam vet-turned-barkeeper and smuggler, Allie learned early on the skills necessary to survive on the wrong side of the American dream. As a young girl, she learned how to drink and fight and shoot and joined her father and his partner on their drug smuggling expeditions before falling into the grip of a nasty cocaine habit. Now in recovery, she has become a courier, driving packages from one part of the country to another.

    Allie is not working for UPS or FedEx, but rather for any number of shadowy figures who pay her well for her services. Most often, she doesn't even know what she's delivering; she simply drives the package from point A to point B, collects her pay and moves on to the next job.

    A former lover named Joe calls her with a simple assignment: pick up a package near Seattle and deliver it to Houston. No muss, no fuss; Easy Money. It turns out to be anything but, and everything that could go wrong does go wrong, right from the git go. The pickup site is a seedy bar and Allie barely has the package in hand (well, surreptitiously slipped into her back pocket), when two guys come into the bar and kill the guy who delivered it to her.

    Things go sideways in a big hurry. Allie is lucky to get out alive, and from there things only get worse. She hops into her Mustang and begins a long odyssey that will take her from Seattle across the country with both the bad guys and the cops hot on her trail. The package she's carrying has the potential to disrupt the lives of some Very Important People and could expose secrets that were supposed to have been buried decades earlier.

    It's a compelling trip through the proverbial sordid underbelly of American life, and it's hard to imagine that this book was Jenny Siler's debut novel. It's even harder to believe that she was only in her mid-twenties when she wrote it. It has the depth and the wisdom that one would expect to find in a book from a much more seasoned author in the middle of his or her career. It should appeal to readers who like their tales hard boiled and on the dark and gritty side, on the order of authors like James Crumley who wrote a very strong blurb for the book.

  • After reading Jenny Siler�s most recent novel, SHOT, I could not wait to read her first two novels: EASY MONEY and ICED. I just finished EASY MONEY and I must say that it is interesting to see the development of a writer. In MONEY, Siler has created another hard-boiled gun toting take no crap heroine who is innately the equal of any man and smarter. Allie Kerry is a courier for a guy who might be best described as a low rent Lothario with no scruples and probably the first �guy� in Allie�s life. Joey has asked Allie to pick up a package in Washington State and deliver it to Houston. What happens next is a wild ride across the underbelly of America with some volatile ingredients: a nice blend of CIA intrigue, concealed drug ops during the Viet Nam War, shootouts across the country from Bremerton to Miami and enough action to satisfy any adrenaline junky. One cannot help but believe that there is a little of Siler in each of her women characters. Siler is described as having worked as a forklift driver, a furniture mover, a grape picker, a salmon grader, a tutor to deaf students, a waitress, a sketch model, and a bartender. Blended with Siler�s rather formidable educational background at Andover and Columbia her writing skills are just simply fabulous. Nothing like life experience and intellect to make a novel hum with the excitement and adventure created by Siler in EASY MONEY. Her poetic and lyrical style and interesting character creations are in a word flawless. You won�t soon forget Joey, Mark, Chloe, Cyrus, Darwin, Willie Phao and John Wykel: all of these characters are well fleshed out and each has a certain edge that makes him or her unforgettable. Jenny Siler is the real deal. Siler is to the West what Faulkner was to the South. Someday, Siler will definitely be included in the pantheon of great American writers.

  • Drug running is big business in Florida. Mangroves in small bay inltets up and down the west coast of the state were made for midnight deliveries.
    Jenny Stiller takes the reader into the world of the drug runner. And, lest one get the impression that it's all excitement and glamour, this gripping novel gets it right. The days are endless, the friendships never truly exist and the life of a drug runner is one of constantly trying to survive only to run another load.
    The protaganist in this novel is a woman, Alison Kerry from Key West. Interestingly enough, though, the action begins in Seattle and runs throughout the heartland of America. Violence and suspense, combined with good character development and a very believeable plot make this one great novel.
