The town bully and budding psychopath was killed by 17-year old Jay Desmarteaux. Everyone knew he deserved it, but only one person went to prison for it.
Twenty-five years later and out on early release, the town and its hierarchy don’t want Desmarteaux around. Not a surprise really, but why have Papa Andre and Mama Angeline disappeared?
Saved inside by the wisdom of fellow con Okie, those who owe him on the outside would rather drag him under. You’re going to want to read this as a slow-dance on a rotating dance floor.
Thomas Pluck writes some bitching prose with a steadfast hand, and thumping heart. There are debts to collect and Bad Boy Boogie shows how it’s done.
