All Her Father’s Guns Book Description
Cal Lyte, a gun-loving venture capitalist, is tired of paying alimony to his ex-wife Tabytha. Plotting to blackmail her and derail her campaign for Congress, he enlists the help of their daughter’s boyfriend, British academic Reid Seyton, to unearth some Lyte family secrets. But the results turn out to be more than anyone bargained for, in an escalating cycle of revelations that will leave nobody’s life the same. (Amazon)
I was playing footsie under the restaurant table with my girlfriend Lyllyan, while her father, Cal, tried to persuade me all kindergarteners should be trained in the use of handguns. Do Americans talk so loudly because they’re afraid God can’t hear them? (Page 1)
I have only just started this novel by British born, San Franciscan author James Warner and I am hooked. With these two sentences as the opener, how can one not be engaged from the outset?
Although dripping in highly amusing dry wit, I can already tell there is something a lot deeper soon to surface.
Looking forward to reading your teasers!
