Ten years ago, Kevin Davenport's life was rocked after witnessing the murder of his father. It's tough enough growing up without a father, but now there's not enough money to support himself, his mother and college tuition.

But Kevin doesn't give up so easily.

He never gets the luxury of a "normal job" and is always on the hustle. And this time is no different.

He finds himself working in the corrupt Kosher World Meat Factory, a gritty business controlled by a crime syndicate and filled with a bizarre cast of characters who start turning up dead.

Things are never as they seem as Kevin begins to get a little too involved in the lives of hardened criminals. Soon enough, he finds himself in a battle for his life.

Zombie sighting:
I stumble like a zombie to my spot in the Hotdog Room.
- page 46, chapter 4

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): hero
Definitely an unputdownable book!

Male bonding, some fight club-ish-nish, good guys vs bad guys.

I liked the character so much that I would love to read a series or at least a sequel with him!

Better yet, a movie version!

  1. When I graduate from State and get a real job, I'm buying a Maserati GranCambrio.

  2. Some low budget tombstones are actually outside the metal fence. I guess they got a discount.

    Thanks for the giveaway.
