PRAISE FOR LUCKY BASTARD:
"Wickedly sharp and wildly entertaining. S.G. Browne is one of today's very best writers." —New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry
"Springboarding off a traditional noir framework, Browne delivers an insightful, intriguing tale....With twists aplenty, this fast-paced adventure succeeds as both a hard-boiled homage and a paranormal romp." —Publishers Weekly (starred review & Pick of the Week)
"Browne hits the funny bone hard....Smartly constructed fiction...that sets it apart from the crowd." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Full of witty writing and hilarious adventures...I laughed out loud many times. Read the book: it will be your good fortune." —New York Times bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson
"Lucky Bastard is wonderful San Francisco noir, full of humor, irony, hot women, and cranial trauma. What more could you ask for in a book? The titular bastard may be in for a very bad day, but Browne's readers are the lucky ones." —New York Times bestselling author Christopher Golden
"A very clever novel....Nick [Monday] is a likable narrator...and the story’s lightly noirish feel gives the proceedings an evocatively gritty texture. This one will appeal equally to readers of mysteries and fantasies." —Booklist

Top customer reviews
I loved S.G. Browne's Breathers and Big Egos -- both were clever, fun and funny stories with great characters. Lucky Bastard was none of that. None of the characters in Lucky Bastard were very likeable or interesting, and most of the book was just narrative or the main character rambling on about nothing -- fill.
The concept of "Luck Poachers" could be interesting, but this book didn't go anywhere compelling and the story of one lazy smart-ass luck poacher P.I. getting leveraged (and kidnapped) over and over by different people who use his sister for collateral was thin and boring.
Maybe this was a deadline crunch, contract book for the author... who knows, but it wasn't worth the time to read it.
Read Breathers and Big Egos, but skip Lucky Bastard.
A wonderful concept meets a gritty, relatable character cast. I love the style Browne uses in these books, the wit and the sarcasm really makes the read sincerely enjoyable. Overall, well worth the price of admission to this circus.
