It’s not what you tell so much as how you tell it, and this second of the Bayou trilogy is a corker. A trio of robbers, members of a prison gang called The Wing, are hitting poker games run by the gangster mucketymucks who run much of St. Bruno. Shade is partnered with his former childhood pal Shuggie Zeck, who’s now a bagman for Mr. B, and neither of them particularly are proud of what the other has become. It’s a violent and brutal tale, with that Cajun flavoring that makes it oh the more spicy.
