Description

The Carrion Birds from Urban Waite, author of the highly acclaimed The Terror of Living, is a remarkable work of literary noir.

Hired gun Ray Lamar is ready to put his past behind him. He wants to see his twelve-year-old son and start a new life--away from the violence of the last ten years. One last heist will take him there. All he has to do is steal a rival's stash. Simple, easy, clean.

But when things start to go very wrong, Ray realizes the path to redemption isn't always easy.

A soulful tale of violence, vengeance, and contrition, The Carrion Birds is an elegant depiction of one man's last chance to make things right.
