Follow The Money:  A Collection of Interconnected Short Stories
Author:  Ross Cavins
Publisher:  RCG Publishing
ISBN:  978-1438253961

I knew I had discovered a Kindred Spirit in author Ross Cavins when he started this collection of short stories with an all time favorite quote of mine from Moliere: "Writing is like prostitution.  First You do it for love, then for a few close friends and then for money."  This book is among the funniest I have ever read. 

What I especially love is that the humor sort of sneaks up on you, and leaves you laughing out loud and gasping for breath.  Thankfully, I was not reading in a crowded room.  Laughing and okay, actually snorting my way through these stories, I marvelled at the bigger than life characters, and for many of them, they rang true as the personalities of some family members and friends, all of whom shall remain nameless.

From a couple of inept "good ole boy" kidnappers to a slimey but smart " investment" con man to a fast talking (and even faster thinking) young redneck fellow in a rush to get on with what he hopes will be a romantic evening with his girl, these are really great characters, each memorable and a little bit nuts.  There are ten stories in this book, and it left me wanting lots more.  All ten are excellently done, with great characters and innovative plot lines.  I'm glad I don't have to pick one favorite, cause that would be tough.  Each are unique and charming.  The characters grow on you, and all of them could be the subject of a book by themselves.  I really look forward to reading more by this funny, funny author.  Read it all at once, or savor each story slowly, either way, you'll be glad to have followed the money.......what a ride!
