Book Description

"Against the granite; he'd been lying there for hours--probably since last night--on Baldwin Avenue either dying slow or, if he'd been lucky, dying fast from whatever had happened to him. From the looks of it, someone had bashed in his skull; whenever it happened, last night or this morning, he was gone now--he was gone and nobody cared but me."

Every day in Jersey City someone gets it: by accident or on purpose people die; the body count rises while the lucky ones continue on with their lives: very few notice and hardly no one cares. Vince cared, and when he discovers a body splayed out on the searing concrete of Baldwin Avenue, it becomes his mission to discover the why's and what for's. What results is a hardboiled murder mystery that is as bizarre as it is excessive. Violent and profane, the fists and expletives fly as Vince puts foot in ass, fist in jaw until finding answers to his questions in the merciless shadows of Jersey City.

Also Includes chapter one of next year's all-new Foolkiller novel.

this book is not very good, it is about a violent crime
told in a violent way I gave up on it after about a quarter
of the way through. I would not suggest it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Short Read July 31, 2013

I am not sure what the expectations were of the majority of female reviewers here strangely. I personally enjoyed the book, I have given it a 5 as for me either you like a book or you don't. This book was somewhat different to the norm and that's what I enjoyed about it. It is a short story and an intriuging one as it ACTAULLY has me thinking from a different perspective rather than a straight laced story. I do not think that the story is boring as it is fast paced, and not for one second did the author waffle on with self indulgent drivel that most pretentious authors prefer to do. This story had my attention and was a great escape for some time killing. T he driving force for me was the continual line of sanity and madness that was surprisingly blurred and had me re-evaluating the story and it's unexpected twists. The antagonist himself had me doing much second guessing as to his and all the characters involved motives.If you are someone who can look into a story beyond the words, beyond your own perception of reality, then you will be rewarded with an interesting and intriguing work. Maybe the negative reviews are because readers expect formulaic predictable stories as part of a comfort aesthetique. Who knows,me personally, I like something new and a fresh perspective of the genre.
If I may say to the negative reviewers, if you have nothing better to do than critique a $2 book, then please write your own book and let the rest of the people who actually do something with their lives progress. I enjoyed this book and am currently reading "Foolkiller" by the same author and it is one heck of an action thriller. I really like the writing style and pacing of the authors' work.
