“Few novels marry tough and tender, head-banging and coming-of-age, as seamlessly as this one does, but that’s no surprise from a supremely talented writer who keeps getting better.“–Booklist, starred review

“A lean, mean crime story about two bereaved fathers getting their hands bloody… This is a bloody good yarn with two compelling antiheroes you’ll root for from the start, and not only because their enemies, or at least some of them, belong to a White nationalist biker club with murderous ways of its own. Lean and mean, this is crime fiction with a chip on its shoulder. Violence and love go hand in hand in this tale of two rough men seeking vengeance for their murdered sons.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“His story of fathers and sons, of men learning to respect others’ lives, has an unexpected depth for such a violent, confrontational book. This powerful book should be in every library.“–Library Journal, starred review

“Beauregard ‘Bug’ Montage was the best wheelman in town, but after his last score, he quit the business and bought an auto repair shop… 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

“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.”–Booklist, starred review
