She looked at the rotting sun blasted shack the one room where they all lived slept made love died Looked at the dusty law. THE BRAT is probably the best book I've read by Gil Brewer and follows his often used theme of a woman that is deceitful and guilty of betrayal Others have mentioned in their reviews of his books that they seem made up as he goes along possibly after a night with the bottle but this one felt very well put together and worthy of a 4 star rating in my book actually would be a 4 12 star since part of it takes place in a swamp

review The Brat

The BratN where no grass grew At the steaming swamp at her tobacco spitting mother Saw the sly lustful eyes of her father’s frie. Surprised this one was never made into a movie because it has everything Robbery murder double crosses car chases boat chases gun fights hot babes and hunky guys The title is one of those misleading Gold Medal marketing ploys common in the 50s Evis is no brat but she is all femme fatale going at things “like a blitzkrieg in tight nylons”The novel starts right in the middle of the action with Lee Sullivan showing up late for the robbery planned by his wife Evis and uickly realizing that she is framing him for both the robbery and the murder of her co worker After a back story chapter describing how they met and the progression towards the robbery the chase is on as Sullivan tries to track down Evis and the 100000 with the police in pursuit Plenty of action in this one with a fully realized narrative arcBrewer is one of my favorite noir writers and the reasons why are all on display in this novel Relentless pace Brewer simply does not slow the action down Even in the brief moments of character interiority the thinking is fast and moving forward He doesn’t turn the narrative over to extended philosophizing or psychologizing just delivers the insights the stabs of realization and moves the story forward His description of action seuences is crisp and vivid and easy to follow and propulsive And his descriptions off settings don’t bog down the narrative while remaining evocative “The river curved in and out meandering high banked and black Pushing through underbrush and occasional jungle growth I heard the sounds of things in the river The low throaty grunt just at that moment when silence ruled The splash and settling of a colossal body”
