Price: $5.00
Deep in debt to Tough City's biggest boss, DeCameron Wichita takes a missing persons job that he oughtn't've and makes the biggest rookie mistake a guy like him could make: he falls in love. With a stone-cold killer. But because he never does anything half-way, he also interferes with a blood feud, challenges Da Cherch, butts heads with pornographers, goes on the lam from the FTCP, saves a damsel in distress, jumps out of a flying machine, puts on a dress, goes to the movies, and visits his mom. Oh yeah, and punches a whole lotta people. Just like any other day in Tough City. Only it wasn't any other day. It was Tuesday.

    Tough City is witty, clever, appropriately hard-boiled, and downright funny... captures the genre perfectly and pokes fun at the same time. Classic lines of thought mix with updated ideas to give it a modern timelessness and the required slick veneer... marry Maltese Falcon and Star Trek TNG characters playing and adapting to holo-deck stories of detective Dixon Hill. Tough City is well described – I can clearly see DeCameron in my mind, where he is, what he does... and not since Peter Falk played Sam Spade in Murder by Death have I had this much fun with the genre... Tough City is a fun read that's over too-soon, especially for those who enjoy detective stories. Is the motel in Wichita still there and the room available? Is it too late to ask: “more please...”?

    Extry! Extry! Read all about it! A two fists in the air whirlwind of a crimedy. If you are looking for romance, comedy, crime, adventure, and maybe a few other things too, Tough City has got these, and more, in spades for you. This is an ice-cream Sunday with the sprinkles and cherry-on-top pulp novella for the hard-boiled and sci-fi lover. To quote the back cover “A cross between bloody-knuckle noir and old-school Pink Panther slapstick–it only hurts when you laugh, and you’ll laugh a lot.” – Scott Sigler, author Contagious AND “I sat up in my seat when I read the introduction, moved to the edge when I read the first chapter, and held on tight when the damn thing took off. The only book this year that I read in one sitting, Tough City is the kind of literary experiment the world needs more of. Blisteringly odd descriptions and quirky, character-driven dialogue make for an unforgettable read!” – Travis Sentell, author Fluid Get your copy today, you aren't going to want to miss out on...
