A Crime Novella.

When two young girls disappear with a trunk-load of pot, unaware their payload has been packed with an extra five kilos of cocaine, a lovable loser persuades a sociopathic killer to pursue them across Northern California on a violent, twisted goose-chase that ends in a horrific place none of them could have foreseen.

Praise for PIGGYBACK:

"Piggyback restores noir to its dark kingdom, a rollicking pumping novel of losers, psychos, stone killers, idiotic amateur rip-off artists, and a road-movie of a story that is as fast as it is beautifully written. Think Don Winslow's Savages meets Christopher Cook's Robbers and you have the dark read of the year." -Ken Bruen, two-time Shamus Award-winner

"Piggyback is a wild frenzy of drugs, violence, and crazy plot twists. Somebody needs to make the film version." -Tony DuShane, author of Confessions of a Teenage Jesus Jerk
