Liberation: Being the Adventures of the Slick Six After the Collapse of the United States of America

Liberation: Being the Adventures of the Slick Six After the Collapse of the United States of America - Brian Francis Slattery I loved Slattery's prose and world-building (for lack of a better term), and the emotional arc of the novel rang true to me, but the plotting was. . .uhh, a little lacking. I wanted a clever heist, I wanted to see the characters working through obstacles. Instead I got a remarkably straightforward plan that went off without a hitch--and one that I didn't buy would achieve their long-term objectives. The meat of the story was all in how the characters related to each other. I'm fine with that kind of novel, but then why throw in a save-the-world B-plot?
