Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Following his fast-and-furious noir thrillers, Gun Monkeys and The Pistol Poets, Victor Gischler returns with a full throttle suspense novel that pits an eccentric collector against an unlikely repo man. Teddy Folger is bored with his life, so he burns down his comic-book store for the insurance money. The plan: sail to a distant island where he can drink rum and chase women. But things don't work out quite as Teddy planned.... Connor Samson is repo man extraordinaire, and he's reclaimed Teddy's boat. But Connor doesn't know about the priceless stowaway on board. Soon, billionaire collector Ahira Kurisaka and a gang of would-be ninjas are hot on Connor's trail--and they'll stop at nothing to get what they want. With chaos just a few steps behind him, Connor is going to have to act fast... or become just another expendable on a bloody path to the ultimate collectible. With an eccentric cast of criminals and everymen, Suicide Squeeze showcases Gischler's thrilling, and often hilarious, wordsmanship in a tough, gritty, and enormously entertaining crime caper.

Synopsis:

The Edgar Award-nominated author of Gun Monkeys delivers an adrenaline rush of a novel that features a special appearance by Joe DiMaggio.

The high spot of Teddy Folger's life was the day in 1954 that he got an autographed baseball card from Joe DiMaggio himself. It's been downhill ever since. Which is why he just unloaded his freeloading wife and torched his own comic-book store-in one of the stupidest insurance scams in history. Enter Conner Samson. The down-on-his-luck repo man has just been hired to repossess Teddy's boat. Little does he know there's a baseball card on board that some men are willing to kill for. Thus begins a rip-roaring cross-country odyssey-and with bodies piling up, the squeeze is on for the penultimate piece of Americana. And Conner will be lucky if he ends up back where he started: broke and (still) breathing.

From the Hardcover edition.

About the Author
