Fast-paced and slickly written, this trio of novellas hit hard and fast… and leave a high body count in their wake.
Emmett Dalton robbed banks, got shot twenty-three times, did his time in prison, and became a businessman capitalizing on his past.
But his past is calling to him. The young guys of the 1930s have no style or panache. He needs to show them how it’s done.
Forty years after their heyday, an unlikely trio of senior citizens go on a bank robbing spree. However, breaking the law at any age is never a good thing to do.
Sort of a one-item bucket list for over-the-hill gangsters, this read has moments to make crime fiction and history fans smile. Emmett Dalton, Baby Face Nelson, and John Dillinger… all in the same room; G-Man Melvin Purvis is a regular guy, and Hoover is still a jerk.
An author is chosen at random by baddies to commit a murder. His wife is killed and daughter taken to motivate him. Joe Gibson has to become a killer to save his daughter.
Riding Shotgun shows what a regular joe is capable of when pushed too far. Crooks don’t know what they’re up against when they turn a good guy bad.
This one played like a movie in my head with the late Charles Bronson as Joe Gibson. Good stuff.
Wannabe rappers try to take revenge on the arrogant record company mogul who fired them by kidnapping him to extort money from him.
There are two problems.
Two—he’s more hard-core than they are.
I can’t even call the crime a comedy of errors. It’s more likes scenes of stupidity. Loop and Bugs… OMG! They should have sold the house, banked their cash and gotten jobs at Best Buy.
Disgraced Chicago cop, Charlie Grimes, ends up in L. A…. and investigating the crime. He’s got a bad ticker and a smart mouth and his one-liners are priceless.
Riding Shotgun and Other American Cruelties is not for the faint-of-heart, squeamish, or HEA-fanatics. But any reader looking for great crime fiction with killer writing (see what I did there?) needs to download this today!
