Nice review of THE KILL FLOOR from James L'Etoile, award-winning author of Dead Drop, Black Label, and the Detective Pensley series: "What a rush! The Kill Floor starts hot and doesn't let up. Great characters and devious plotting will keep you reading the latest from John Desjarlais well into the night. A peek into the farming industry where the murder of the most hated man in town puts everyone in the suspect pool. I may never look at bacon the same way again. Highly recommended!"
