A SIMPLE STORY THAT WARPS INTO A SPLENDID MORALITY TALE!

This being the month for gritty noir, let’s turn next to Snow by Mike Bond, a book that hits many of the same notes as Scott Smith’s sterling A Simple Plan. A plane crash once again serves as the catalyst, a plane this time carrying enough cocaine to cover an entire season of the classic Miami Vice TV show.  Our (dark) heroes Zack, Steve and Curt happen upon the stash while hunting in the hinterlands of Montana—a deft touch, given they’re about to become hunted themselves by cops, killers and cartels alike.  All of a sudden, the found money that’s the answer to all their problems becomes the source of far more. At its best, which is most of the time, Bond’s latest reads like a less showy and manipulative No Country for Old Men. A simple story at its heart that warps into a splendid morality tale, Snow is wrapped as tightly as a Christmas bow and just as much fun as what’s inside the box.
