In Peter Farris's Last Call for the Living, for bank teller Charlie Colquitt it was another Saturday. For Hobe Hicklin, an ex-con with nothing to lose, it was another score. For Hobe's drug-addled, sex-crazed girlfriend, it was more lust, violence, and drugs. But Hicklin's first mistake was double-crossing his partners in the Aryan Brotherhood. His second was taking a hostage. He and Charlie could hide out for only so long before Hicklin's past catches up to them. Hot on Hicklin's trail are a pair of Brotherhood soldiers, ready to burn a path of murder and mayhem to get revenge. GBI Special Agent Sallie Crews and Sheriff Tommy Lang catch the case, and soon Crews is making some dangerous connections. For hard-drinking, despondent Lang, rescuing Charlie might be the key to personal salvation.

Farris's writing is reminiscent of Stephen Hunter and Cormac McCarthy at their brutal best."--Douglas Preston, "New York Times "bestselling author of "Impact "" ""With "Last Call for the Living", Peter Farris sticks a shotgun in your face, cracks you a beer, works you over with a meat tenderizer, insults your mama, punches your junk, and otherwise gives you the wildest Southern vacation you've ever had. Farris has just announced himself as a major new talent in crime fiction, and he ain't telling us politely."--Duane Swierczynski, Anthony Award-winning author of " Fun & Games"""Last Call for the Living" left blisters on my eyelids and teeth marks on my soul. Combining razor sharp prose, a tight plot and characters I could relate to, the narrative tension bites down and doesn't let go."--Frank Bill, author of "Crimes in Southern Indiana""This novel comes at you like an abusive parent, succors you like a mother, smacks you down like a bully, then helps you back up to see the light like a blood brother--but one cranked on meth, steeped in whiskey, and gunned-up for a final showdown. "Last Call for the Living" is a debut novel with true regret in its heart, and a poignant sadness at the implacability of fate. It is probably the most ballistic family values story you'll ever read."--David J. Schow, author of "Gun Work " "Sam Peckinpah meets Flannery O'Connor in Peter Farris's astonishingly good debut. The veracity of violence, the beauty of brutality, and the majesty of the marginalized all align like malignant stars in this disturbing, literate, and authentic novel. "Last Call for the Living "is the manifesto of a talent who deserves your attention."--Grant Jerkins, author of "A Very Simple Crime"
