Review - Rico Slade Will Fucking Kill You by Bradley Sands @bradley_sands

Rico Slade Will Fucking Kill You

The author offers this synopsis:

What the crap is Arnold Schwarzenegger doing on the cover of Rico Slade's book? This is Rico Slade's goddamn book. Rico Slade is not a body builder, an actor, or a governor. Rico Slade is an action hero.
Rico Slade doesn't care about the political climate. Rico Slade has an advanced degree in badassery. Rico Slade's favorite food is the honey-roasted peanut. Rico Slade can rip out a throat with his bare hands.
But Rico Slade has a problem. His arch-nemesis, Baron Mayhem, is threatening to drop a bomb on the Earth that will kill every human being except himself while leaving the world's currency intact. To save the planet, Rico Slade must journey across Hollywood to find Baron Mayhem. Unfortunately, Rico Slade's crime fighting style involves ripping out the throat of anyone who gets in his way, including grandmothers and Midwestern tourists.
As Rico Slade leaves Hollywood in ruins, the only person who can stop him from destroying the city is his Jewish psychologist, Harold Schwartzman. Until he does, Rico Slade will kill as many people as it takes to thwart Baron Mayhem's evil scheme. Rico Slade will fucking kill everyone.

Chip Johnson is having a bad day living out the fantasy of Rico Slade. Rico Slade must save the world from Baron Mayhem. In order to reach Baron Mayhem, Rico will kill, maim, destroy and explode everything in his path.

I really liked this story in all its psychotic glory. Chip has totally lost his mind and Rico Slade has stepped in to take over. Bradley Sands writing style captures the machismo and bravado that is Rico Slade, the greatest action star ever to be on film.

From start to finish, Sands pushes you to finish this book with swift and concise sentences. He adds a comedic edge to the story that makes the absurdity seem real. None of it makes sense but the world Sands created doesn't have to. This is Rico Sands and you either give him what he wants or he rips out your throat. Heck, Rico may rip out your throat anyway.

The story is packed with action, comedy, sex, blood and a dash of love. It's a great read.
