From the host of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown and New York Times bestselling author of Kitchen Confidential, a crime novel about a lovable criminal, a fabulous cook, and a botched robbery that sets the pair on the run.

After doing ten years in the clinker, Bobby Gold out and ready for work. With not even an attempt to play it straight, he's back to breaking bones for tough guys. His turf: the club scene and restaurant racket. It's not that he enjoys the job—Bobby has real heart—but he's good at it and a guy has to make a living. Things change when he meets Nikki, the cook at a club most definitely not in his territory. Smitten, he can't stay away. Bobby Gold had known trouble before, but with Nikki the sauté bitch in his life, things take a turn for life or death.

A fast, furious, pitch-perfect story of food, sex, crime, and mayhem, The Bobby Gold Stories is Bourdain at his best.
