HAPPY HOUR IN HELL
Despite Williams’ reputation as a creative and prolific writer, the second installment of his Bobby Dollar series would have benefited from several more rounds of editing. The narration style is repetitive and the language is mundane, making potentially interesting situations, characters and locales completely uninteresting. At the heart of the story is a well thought-out plot with mystery and supernatural thrills, but it is a challenge to enjoy when it is buried beneath the author’s inability to create suspense. Happy Hour in Hell lacks the polished feel that could have made it a great book.
