It’s a crime that history repeats itself.
Sensationally good – new, fresh, real, authentic, twisty, with characters and dilemmas that will break your heart. ~ Lee Child
I loved Blacktop Wasteland. The epigram tells you all you need to know about this fast-paced, bareknuckle thriller: “Drive it like you stole it”. ~ Stephen King
Blacktop Wasteland by S.A. Cosby
Beauregard “Bug” Montage: honest mechanic, loving husband, devoted parent. He’s no longer the criminal he once was – the sharpest wheelman on the east coast, infamous from the hills of North Carolina to the beaches of Florida.
But when his respectable life begins to crumble, a shady associate comes calling with a clean, one-time job: a diamond heist promising a get-rich payout. Inexorably drawn to the driver’s seat – and haunted by the ghost of his outlaw father – Bug is yanked back into a savage world of bullets and betrayal, which soon endangers all he holds dear…
Like Breaking Bad in a high-speed collision with Drive, this stunning crime novel holds up a cracked mirror to the woozy ideals of the American dream – a dazzling, operatic story of a man pushed to his limits by poverty, race and a scarred, self-destructive masculinity.
