Paul Ryan has not read Marty’s Town, the fourth novel by Jim Fuller, but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t be a great vice president. It wouldn’t be any help to him to know how to shear sheep or how to tromp wool but he might enjoy reading about how Wesley Taylor reacted when a dead man’s eyes opened and closed. Or perhaps he would be amused at the way Cindy breaks up a fight between Wesley and her husband. He might have some tense moments when a crazed man attacks Wes Shearer with a knife during a dark night. These and many other fascinating events can be found all through this enjoyable novel.
