Synopsis: Culvert City, a place where bad people do bad things to each other. A hard place, a tough place, it's Killtown USA, Fist City, Murderville America, whatever you want to call it. Culvert City doesn't have a "bad side" of town, every square inch of the place is strychnine nasty and terminal as cancer.
Crime bosses, crooked cops, hitmen, ladies of the night, thugs, petty thieves, junkies, dirty politicians, gun thugs . . . every bad seed of every rotten apple lives here.
Good people who live here too.
They're called victims.
This is Crime fiction done right. Hard as concrete and twice as cold. Eight hard-boiled yarns of wrong-doing.
Review: Culvert City is not a happy-go-lucky place to live – it’s the meanest and toughest place in the US, where the murdered outnumber the living. Filled with rotten people and dirty deeds, this town is not for the meek or weak of heart. HIRED GUN features very short stories with a description beforehand of the author’s inspiration/state of mind for the story. I especially enjoyed the no-name hitman and his catch phrase. Down and dirty crime fiction, HIRED GUN hits all the right spots. I hope we see more of the no-name hitman in the future. Check out HIRED GUN for something outside the norm!
