Gritty, dark, and utterly addictive, Octopus on My Head is Jim Nisbet at his absolute best.

Resigning himself to the doldrums of middle age, the only thing Curly Watkins has left of his former life as a punk rocker is a guitar and a tattoo of an octopus on his head. But his quiet new life quickly evaporates when old vices come back to haunt him, leading to a newfound hell of drugs, drink, and murder.

"Nobody has Nisbet's distinctive style, humor, and sheer craft . . . One of the finest masters of noir." --Ken Bruen, author of The Guards

"Jim Nisbet has a voice so original . . . it might remind you of a younger Kurt Vonnegut." --Chicago Tribune
