Sex, Thugs, and Rock-n-Roll The wild, daring, sexy and outrageously original crime novel from Anthony and Macavity Award nominee Craig Faustus Buck. Nob Brown is a divorced, disillusioned thirty-something ex-cop turned bottom-feeding tabloid writer. His best friend and occasional lover, Gloria Lopes, is an LAPD detective who needs an Excel spreadsheet to chart her sex life. When Gloria slips Nob the confidential file on the unsolved twenty-year-old murder of a legendary rock-and-roll goddess, Nob hopes to solve the crime and propel himself out of the tabloids and into a lucrative book deal. But he pokes into the wrong holes and unearths rotting secrets that give rise to fresh corpses. As the cold case comes to a fast boil, Nob is forced to battle for his own survival.
“One of the finest and most entertaining crime novels of the year… GO DOWN HARD also shows traces of such contemporary masters as Donald E. Westlake and Elmore Leonard – especially in its combination of abrupt, unexpected violence and laugh-out-loud humor. Anyone curious about the state of or characteristics of the contemporary crime novel need look no further than GO DOWN HARD. Let’s hope Craig Faustus Buck doesn’t keep us waiting too long for a follow-up.” –Bookgasm.com
