Overview

He saw in the rusted mirror the man he’d become, new scars and all.

His wife killed, his family shattered, a man takes to the road, wandering lost and alone — except for the comfort of a kind of woman he can’t deny. When a tryst in the shadow of Arizona’s red rocks leads to murder, the man sets out to clear his name and corner the killer, unaware that a madman is on his trail — and the trail of his estranged daughter.

The second book in the Sam series, Billboard Man follows Jim Fusilli’s drifter antihero, who once again learns there’s no place to hide on the long, dark road when so many people want him dead.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Fusilli’s cryptic noir, the nameless 41-year-old drifter introduced in 2012’s Road to Nowhere continues to hit the road in the wake of his wife’s death. He stops at a small Arizona copper-mining town, where he tells a woman he meets in a bar, Ginger, that his name is J.J. A wiry guy in the bar, Boone Stillwell, calls J.J. “an old man” and makes threatening moves. J.J. prefers to turn down the heat, but ends up smashing a beer mug in Boone’s face. J.J. leaves the bar, accompanied by Ginger, with whom he has a one-night stand. He later travels to Memphis, where he gets entangled with another woman. Thousands of miles away, Francis Cherry, a Wall Street powerbroker with a mysterious vendetta, sends henchmen to find J.J. Meanwhile, the now recovered but still humiliated Boone begins to pursue the drifter, too. Spare prose only partially redeems the obscure plot. (Sept.)
