The Devil's Punchbowl by Greg Iles

There were parts of this that were very difficult for me to listen to becuase of the dog fighting element; although, I think that's testament to the talent of Iles. He can tell the story well enough to make you squirm sometimes. Conclusively, this is a good book; however, it's not my favorite from Iles. I don't love some of the characters. I think Kristen is largely a pain in the ass and the dichotomy between Penn Cage and tough guy Kelly whats-his-name is almost canned in its all too common/familiar formulaic set up.
