Blood on the Sun by Thomas Thompson


The thin man laughed, a high wild sound. “Where I come from, punk,” he said to Ted, “you wouldn’t live to be as tall as you think you are.”
A good story from the rock-solid Thomas Thompson. Here we have a man called “Preacher” who is not exactly that. The tale is a bit bifurcated as the fist half is the usual superlative work from Thompson, but it seems to go a bit formulaic in the second half.
It doesn’t stop it from being a good read, but Thompson, being a fine writer, has delivered more.
Here, I measure him against himself.
