The cancer or the mob?Like everyone reading Galveston these days I love HBO's True Detective the best thing since sliced Breaking Bad I'd planned to wait until the series wrapped before reading it but I finally said piss on it Why kill time reading something else when I've got Galveston at my fingertips?Fans of True Detective won't be disappointed Galveston is a noir detective tale but it's also a story about getting older and looking death in the face As he runs with Rocky and her sister TIffany in tow Roy is forced to think back on all the mistakes he's made Not to say it's still not a crime book It very much is from the job at the beginning to Roy protecting his charges to some stomach churning brutality near the endThere are a few things Galveston has in common with True Detective and it's clear Pizzolatto had his masterpiece in mind even while he was working on Galveston the scoundrel Cady has an army of soldiers on his coffee table made from spent Miller High Life cans on his coffee table He also ponders the nature of stories time and death a fair amount There's also another element that they have in common but I'm not going to spoil that oneRoy is something of a beer can philosopher akin to Pizzolatto's later creation Rustin Cohle He has uite a few uotable lines most of which deal with getting older The last new song you liked came out a long long time ago and the radio never plays it any Roy's relationship with Rocky and Tiffany does a lot to show what a nuanced character he is with his conflicted feelings about Rocky and love for her sister or is it daughter Tiffany All the lead characters are completely different people by the end of the novel The ending almost sueezed a few man tears out of me but I manned up and powered through itTrue Detective fans have no fear Galveston will be the methadone to your True Detective heroin Five out of five stars
