Curtis has found a soulmate in Julia, but happily-ever-after endings don’t happen in Tombs without a fight—and this time it’s to the death.
Hard men, bare-knuckle brawls, fast girls and dreams of making the big score have filled Curtis’s days. Now he wants out. But leaving a life of crime in the city of Tombs isn’t easy. Whether it’s his partners in crime, his ex-girlfriend or his broken-down crook of a father, the whole town seems to be lining up to settle scores. The only bright spot? Julia, a dark-haired beauty who’s on the run from an abusive boyfriend. Although her body’s been bruised and her soul’s been battered, she still believes life can be good.
Working together, Julia and Curtis know they can make it out of Tombs and find happiness. But when the crime lord’s personal killing machine, Joe Cracker Jones, comes after them, they’re faced with the hardest decision of their lives—let Curtis fight to the death or go on the run together forever.
Welcome to Tombs.

TJ Vargo always wanted to be a writer. His earliest inspiration came from sword and sorcery novels—the ones with a barbarian protecting a damsel in distress--Frank Frazetta paintings brought to life. Those characters lived in shades of gray--stealing, trysting, conniving, sometimes even killing. But when evil reared its ugly head, they took care of business. That’s what TJ aspires to in his fiction.
TJ Vargo is an award-winning author living in Columbus, Ohio, USA. He studied creative writing in the Northeast Ohio MFA program at the University of Akron. Most importantly, he is the owner of a blockheaded boxer named Joey, who has a face like a gorilla.
