Tour: DUKE CITY DESPERADO by Max Austin
Release June 9 2015
For fans of Breaking Bad and the bestselling fiction of Don Winslow and George Pelecanos comes Max Austin's latest fast-paced, rollicking Lawbreakers Thriller of criminals and lovers, malcontents and madmen—all within the treacherous city limits of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Under a sky full of stars, Dylan James lies sleeping on the roof of a pueblo-style house. He's a fugitive, and everyone in Albuquerque seems to be looking for him. A murderous Mafia prince wants to kill him. Two FBI agents want to cuff him. A Goth girl wants to make love to him. And a fierce, sexy Chicana just wants to clean up the mess Dylan made.
The trouble started with a drug-addled career criminal named Doc and a bank robbery staged with a garage door opener. Then it all goes off the rails after a little misunderstanding with Dylan's ex-girlfriend and her jealous, gun-toting new beau.
When the sun comes up, this sleepy, scrawny desperado is going to show the world what he's made of—all for a one-in-a-million shot at walking out of Duke City alive.
Review: DUKE CITY DESPERADO by Max Austin
It seems odd to find humor in a crime novel, but DUKE CITY DESPERADO is laugh-out-loud hilarious. No matter what Doc and Dylan get up too, they just can't catch a break (or any smarts, either). That makes for a fast and truly entertaining romp.
