From the critically acclaimed author of Vinnie's Head, comes a fast-paced crime story about an eccentric thug chasing after a piece of nano-technology and the scientist that created it.
Aaron Rogell is a brilliant San Francisco scientist with a nanotech start-up, a beautiful wife, and a brand-new baby. But Aaron has an ugly little problem; he just can't keep it in his pants. Ignoring business and family, he spends most of his quality time with an upscale call girl named Aphrodite, a toothless street hooker, and other less presentable companions. But when one of Aphrodite's lowlife acquaintances--the fearsome Pablo Clench--learns that her new boyfriend has invented a miraculous technology that may be worth fabulous sums of money, life for Aaron Rogell will never be the same again. And soon, Aaron, his wife and child, the bad guys, and just about everyone else ends up with lots of tiny little troubles.

"For those of us who like our crime writing with a dose of dark humor, Vinnie's Head is the ticket--Marc Lecard has chops!" - Christopher Moore "I promise to never again compare Lecard to Carl Hiaasen in a review. Just this once. Lecard is that good." - Rocky Mountain News "Enlessly Entertaining...sure to appeal to Elmore Leonard fans, this first novel augurs a long and successful career for its author." - Publisher's Weekly, starred review
