HUGE congratulations are in order for S.A. Cosby and BLACKTOP WASTELAND for winning the Barry Award, the Macavity Award, and the Anthony Award for Best Novel!
More praise for BLACKTOP WASTELAND:
“Cosby never misses a note in this high-energy debut, from Bug’s under-the-hood wizardry to the actual driving to the sensitive character building, which gives depth to the entire cast, including even Bug’s hapless yet treacherous associates. A superb crime-fiction debut, uncompromisingly noir but deeply human, too, much like Lou Berney’s NOVEMBER ROAD (2018).”–Booklist, starred review
“Bug’s got a conscience not typical of the thriller genre, but other than that, this debut novel recalls almost perfectly the classic heist thriller in the vein of Richard Stark’s ‘Parker’ novels. It’ll go like hot cakes.”–Library Journal, starred review
