What We Reckon

Author: Eryk Pruitt Narrator: Andrew Eiden Release Date: September 2019

Meet Jack Jordan. He's a smooth-talking con artist with a penchant for the fast life. He's snuck into Lufkin, Texas, in the dead of night with little more than a beat-up Honda, a hollowed-out King James Bible full of cocaine, and enough emotional baggage to sink a steamship. He's charming, dedicated, and extremely paranoid. Summer Ashton is his partner-in-crime. She's stuck by him through thick and thin, but lately, her mind has begun to slip. They've told their fair share of lies, and she's having a devil of a time remembering what's the truth. And recently, she's been hearing voices. Unfortunately for both of them, she's the brains of the operation. Furthermore, they have begun to tire of one another. For these two career grifters, the sleepy East Texas countryside is but another pit stop on their rampage across the American South. Will it be their last?

The Churchgoer: A Novel Audiobook

The Churchgoer: A Novel

Author: Patrick Coleman Narrator: Chris Andrew Ciulla Release Date: July 2019

A haunting debut literary noir about a former pastor's search to find a missing woman in the toxic, contradictory underbelly of southern California. "He was finished with church, with God, with all of it. But to find the girl, he has to go back." In Mark Haines's former life, he was an evangelical youth pastor, a role model, and a family man-until he abandoned his wife, his daughter, and his beliefs. Now he's marking time between sunny days surfing and dark nights working security at an industrial complex. His isolation is broken when Cindy, a charming twenty-two-year old drifter he sees hitchhiking on the Pacific Coast Highway, hustles him for a breakfast and a place to crash-two cynical kindred spirits. Then his co-worker is murdered in a robbery gone wrong and Cindy disappears on the same night. Haines knows he should let it go and return to his safe life of solitude. Instead, he's driven to find out where Cindy went, under stranger and stranger circumstances. Soon Mark is chasing leads, each one taking him back into a world where his old life came crashing down-into the seedier side of southern California's drug trade and ultimately into the secrets of an Evangelical megachurch where his past and his future are about to converge. What begins as an investigation becomes a haunting mystery and a psychological journey both for Mark, and for the elusive young stranger he won't let get away. Set in the early 2000s, The Churchgoer is a gripping noir, a quiet subversion of the genre, and a powerful meditation on belief, morality, and the nature of evil in contemporary life.

Meanwhile his best friend and should-be lover Delia, is about to be married to someone with his own dark secrets.

Lucky Supreme: A Novel of Many Crimes Audiobook

Lucky Supreme: A Novel of Many Crimes

Author: Jeff Johnson Narrator: Keith Szarabajka Release Date: February 2019

The night world of Old Town, Portland, Oregon, has gone mad in the grip of gentrification, and at the center of it all is Lucky Supreme, a seedy tattoo parlor, whose proprietor is a street-bred artist with a unique approach to problem solving. Darby Holland has enough on his radar, but when some flash (tattoo artwork) stolen from him resurfaces in California, he can't help himself. His efforts to reclaim it set him on a dangerous path, dragging along his delightfully eccentric colleagues, including the brains behind his brawn, Delia, a twiggy vinyl-clad punk genius secretly from the other side of the tracks. No one knows why the art signed 'Roland Norton, Panama, 1955' is worth anything or how it came to hang on the walls of a tattoo shop in Portland. Only the deranged former owner can say-and he's not talking. Before the wrecking balls swing through Old Town in the name of 'progress,' Darby must settle old scores and face new demons to save his reputation, his shop, and his sanity. When cash, lies, crime, and history collide, Darby will need his ramshackle skill set, his wits, and a lot of luck to rise to the top of a human food chain, or be eaten alive. Lucky Supreme is an intuitive thrill ride from start to finish in the spirit of Elmore Leonard and Dennis Lehane. It is the first of a trilogy featuring Darby Holland, Delia, and the other unforgettable nocturnal residents of Old Town.
