Recommended Read: Gator Bait by Adam Howe

GATOR bait‘I fled the city: Two fingers short and sworn off dames for life.’

From its brilliant opening Adam Howe‘s short n sharp novella Gator Bait grabs you by the throat and drags you through the down and dirty world of 1930s Louisiana. A sleazy piano makes one mistake after another in this atmospheric, brutal and darkly comic  noir tale. I loved it.
