Suicide Lane (working title), Tim McIntire
As yet unpublished manuscript, but man I want you to be able to read this fucking book. It's so amazing. (HAHAHAHAHA, sorry, Timmy, I couldn't help it.) It's Carl Hiaasen-esque and utterly hilarious. A hapless, alcoholic stand up comedian, ends up in Tucson trapped in a murder mystery involving redneck bikers, shady club owners, a Latino cop with a really hot wife and an insane cast of characters who make each absurd scenario the protag finds himself in even better. It's punchy, and sparsely written in style worthy of Elmore Leonard. Definitely one of the most amusing books I've read this year and I"m not just saying to flatter the author 'cause he's my pal. It's really damn good stuff. Let's hope it sees print so you guys can read it too.
