Overview

It's three thousand miles from the fields of glory, where Henry Hank Thompson once played California baseball, to the Lower East Side of Manhattan, where the tenements are old, the rents are high, and the drunks are dirty. But now Hank is here, working as a bartender and taking care of a cat named Bud who is surely going to get him killed. It begins when Hank's neighbor Russ has to leave town in a rush and hands over Bud in a carrier. But it isn't until two Russians in tracksuits drag Hank over the bar at the joint where he works and beat him to a pulp that he starts to get the idea: someone wants something from him. He just doesn't know what it is, where it is, or how to make them understand he doesn't have it.

Reviews

Wow! Brutal, visceral, violent, edgy and brilliant.


Narrating in the first person, reader Christian Conn becomes Hank and completely captures the tone and texture of this novel's people and places. -- AudioFile Impressive debut, though not for the squeamish. -- Kirkus Reviews It's hard enough for a writer to hit his mark, but Charlie Huston shreds his target with his first bullet fired. A frighteningly assured debut novel. -- John Ridley, author of Stray Dogs Caught Stealing reads like The Maltese Falcon on crack. Tarantino meets Hitchcock meets Westlake meets Bukowski in a wild, relentlessly entertaining ride filled with vivid and colorful-but always believable-characters. -- Wallace Stroby, author of The Barbed Wire Kiss Huston shows a masterful command of first-person narration, deftly chronicling Thompson's gradual slide from victim to avenger. -- Publishers Weekly This polished debut promises a bright future for Huston and definitely belongs on every Elmore Leonard fan's to-read list. -- Booklist (starred review) Wow! Brutal, visceral, violent, edgy, and brilliant. -- Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author
