Lou Berney's novel is so energetic, so droll, and so wheezingly funny that it accomplished what no book ever has before: it made me forget to eat lunch. -Stephen Harrigan, New York Times bestselling author of Challenger Park A fast and funny caper in the tradition of Elmore Leonard, Carl Hiaasen, and the Coen Brothers, Gutshot Straight brings a fresh new talent into the crime fiction fold: Louis Berney. He's already won raves for his short fiction collection The Road to Bobby Joe and Other Stories ( Rivals the work of contemporary hotshots T.C. Boyle and Ralph Lombreglia -Chicago Tribune). With Gutshot Straight, Berney is all in -sure to win a fervent following with the story of Shake Bouchon, fresh out of prison and on the straight and narrow path...after maybe just one last job.
