From ITW Thriller Award nominee and Nicholl award-winning author, Robert Gregory Browne, comes BOTTOM DEAL, the story of Nick Jennings, an ex-cop struggling to survive a nasty fall from grace, only to be confronted by a past he’d just as soon forget.
Holly Addison, a reformed Vegas hooker and police informant, is convinced someone is trying to kill her, and wants Nick’s help. What Nick doesn’t realize is that he’s about to get mixed up in a murder investigation involving the rich and powerful, whose depravity knows no bounds.
And it’ll take everything Nick has in him to win with the hand he’s been dealt.
A 10,000 word short story, Bottom Deal originally appeared in Killer Year: Stories to Die For, edited by Lee Child
PRAISE FOR BOTTOM DEAL:
“Lean and taut, expertly crafted in the good old hard-boiled tradition.”
“Browne’s “Bottom Deal” features a PI that would be at home in a lineup with Spade and Marlowe.”
“Bottom Deal casts an ex-cop as a two-bit magician in Vegas, seeking the murderer of a friend. Both the allure and the sleaze of the 24/7 neon city is well-captured.”
~Rod Lott, Bookgasm
“Browne’s [story] combines engaging characters, a meaty plot, and brisk pace.”
~Gerald So, Nasty. Brutish. Short.
