It's a Hard Case Life For Us...

by Ron Hogan

Mere months after landing Stephen King, the tough guys at Hard Case Crime have done it again. The official word goes out tomorrow, but here's the scoop: Jason Starr and Ken Bruen teamed up for a dark crime comedy called Bust. Hard Case editor Charles Ardai says, "These guys are well versed in the pulp tradition and know how to tell the sort of story that grabs you by the throat on the first page and doesn't let you go until the last. This is definitely a stay-up-all-night-to-finish-it sort of book." And knowing the house--and Starr and Bruen's solo work--as I do, I'm confident there's very little embellishment on that.
