    1. Start with Mark Twain s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Remove the Duke, the King, and Huck, and transplant them into an Erskine Caldwell novel Have the Duke and the King be a little bit smarter Cut Huck s age from fourteen to seven, and make him the Duke s son Throw in a striptease dancer on the run from the mob, and throw in some killing, but all in fun This is what happens when Charles Williams needs a vacation.

    4. C est vrai qu il y a du Audiard dans ce polar rigolo Pas tonnant qu il ait t adapt en France avec Lino Ventura et Mireille Darc.On aura une pens e pleine de compassion pour le personnage du Sh riff qui pourrais faire un sacr bon policier dans pleins d autres polars mais qui pour son malheur est obs d par Saga Noonan.

    6. Une histoire sympathique et intrigante, des personnages attachants, beaucoup d humour et de roublardise, mais les ficelles de l auteur se voient un peu trop, les sujets sont parfois trop amen s et le choix de narration peut parfois poser probl me voire alourdir le tout Mais a reste un bon divertissement qui se lit tr s vite et tr s facilement, avec un peu de malice.



    7. It was hard to read conversation with so much southern slang and I m still unclear about what crime was committed at the end of the book.
