Kill Kill Faster Faster

After spending more than seventeen years behind bars, Joey One-Way believed there was only one way he was getting out of prison, and that was in a box. But that's not exactly how things work out. While serving time Joey wrote a jailhouse drama that became a Broadway sensation. Now big-time producer Markie Mann is staking his reputation to spring and back Joey, counting on him to turn his scripts into Hollywood gold. Joey wants nothing more than to do right by Markie. So it's too bad when he falls so hard for Markie's young wife, Fleur. Now Joey's heading for trouble at high velocity.

Kill Kill Faster Faster is a crime novel like no other. It has the heart and soul of the blues, the hard-boiled edge of classic pulp noir, and the voice of a man whose heart beats too loudly for his own good.
