Overview

Bill is a hustler's hustler with a taste for the high life. He pulls off big scores for one of New York City's more vicious gangs...until he suddenly grows a conscience. However, living the clean life takes a whole lot of money, and so Bill decides to steal a fortune from his employer before skipping town.

With a bag of cash in the trunk of his car, Bill heads west, ready for a new life. But all that money makes him a tempting target for some bad people he meets on the road--and if that wasn't dangerous enough, some old friends are close behind him, and they intend to make a trophy of his head.

Pursued by crooked cops, dimwitted bouncers, and a wisecracking assassin in the midst of a midlife crisis, Bill will need to be a quick study in the way of the gun if he wants to survive his own getaway. Who knew that an honest attempt at redemption could rack up a body count like this?

A Brutal Bunch of Heartbroken Saps is a gonzo noir journey into obsession, violence, and the power of love.

Praise for A BRUTAL BUNCH OF HEARTBROKEN SAPS:

"Dark, bleak and in-your-face, take-no-prisoners prose, everything you want in crime fiction." --Frank Bill, author of Donnybrook and Crimes in Southern Indiana.

"Kolakowski's got a gift of scratching his readers' itch for pulpy, gut-wrenching narrative that moves a mile a minute and never lets you go. A Brutal Bunch of Heartbroken Saps is a hell of a yarn that sets the stage for what should be an essential series for fans of the genre." --Angel Luis Colón, author of No Happy Endings and The Fury of Blacky Jaguar.
