1000 Books In 10 Years; Vol. 136: Daddy Cool, by Dolanld Goines


There is nothing like a father’s love for his daughter.  So it was in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, so it is in Donald Goines’s gritty and graphic Detroit underworld.  Daddy Cool is a knife-wielding hit man from hell who resides in a beautiful ranch-style home.  He married a stacked young woman (who already had two sons), with whom had had his beautiful daughter Janet.  As the years go by, the two sons grown into aspiring gangsters who robbed money from numbers runners and drug dealers, along with a friend who cant pass up an opportunity to rape any woman he can, regardless of her age.  Janet on the other had has been wooed by a pimp who gets her addicted to his dick, and then puts her out on the street.  Pimping out a hit man’s daughter?  Not a great idea.  Neither is holding up gangsters with a rapist on board, but c’est la vie.  Daddy Cool has to make things right when one of his stepsons rapes a 13-year-old girl, so he offs one stepson while a friend takes care of the pimp who is whoring out his daughter by breaking his neck.  Janet is no damsel in distress and has been trained in the art of dagger throwing by her father who meets an ironic end.  The plot unfolds at a break neck speed and as is the case with all of Goines’s novels, nothing short of a tragedy can be the outcome.
