Grit in the teeth – Hair up the ass
Jerry is a guy going nowhere, but he’s fast heading up the 101 from San Fransisco to Humboldt County, the pot growing mecca of California.
He has to hide out with Vic, a friend of his mothers. There is a little matter of stolen money, and then there’s his girlfriend. She’s the step-daughter of the gangster they stole from.
Mix in bikers, Russian gangsters, a cop on a long held mission, and a host of other tough guys and bad asses.
If you like neo-noir 101 is absolutely for you. Tom Pitts delivers everything you’d ever want. That means you should also give his book American Static a read too.

This sounds really good! Thank you!
Sounds like a good one! Thanks!
I’m definitely a fan of any kind of noir. Gonna check this one out. Thanks for posting!
98% of this blog is neo-noir. Hope you find other books that you are interested in.
Thanks for dropping by 🙂
Sounds as though it would make a great television series, too.
For the edgier channels yes, mainstream..no! 🙂
This book is a lot of fun with eccentric characters and a host of perilous situations–certainly a wild ride. I liked it a lot and appreciate your recommendation about American Static.
Thanks Vicky, Pitts is quite a talent. He also shares an interesting history with a favourite author of mine, Joe Clifford, who is also quite a good writer.
Sounds like one to check out!
Yes, you should John, I know you like the grit 🙂
