About this title

Synopsis:

Winner of the Agatha Award for Best First Novel
Finalist for the Anthony Award for Best First Novel
Finalist for the Macavity Award for Best First Novel


Del's a small time crook with a moral conscience--robbing convenience stores only for tuition and academic expenses. Brash and sassy Louise goes from being a holdup victim to Del's lover and accomplice. All they want is a fresh start, an honest life, and a chance to build a family together, but fate conspires to put ever-steeper challenges in their path--and escalating temptations, too.

A real estate scam in recession-blighted Southern California. A wine heist in Napa Valley. A Vegas wedding chapel holdup. A kidnapping in an oil-rich North Dakota boomtown. Can Del and Louise stay on the right side of the law? On one another's good side? And when they head back to Louise's hometown in North Carolina, what new trouble will prove the biggest: Louise's nagging mama or a hidden adversary seemingly intent on tearing the couple apart? Or could those be one and the same?

From screwball comedy to domestic drama, and from caper tale to traditional whodunit, these six stories offer suspense with a side of romance--and a little something for all tastes.

"A would-be Bonnie and Clyde with a sock monkey keyring dangling from the rearview mirror for a talisman? Why not? These linked short stories are by turns funny, sweet and, at times, touchingly poignant as Del and Louise try to turn from a life of crime to one of solid respectability. Half of me hopes they succeed, the other half is ready for another road trip. Highly recommended." -- Margaret Maron, Edgar Award-Winning Author of the Deborah Knott Mysteries

"Warm yetunsentimental, down-to-earth and pragmatic without being cynical--ArtTaylor's characters, like his voice, are a breath of fresh air. Don'tmiss the chance to go on the road with Del and Louise." -- Donna Andrews, Agatha Award-Winning Author of the Meg Langslow Mysteries

"Taylor is expert at capturing small details that bring to life settings andscenes. He has a natural talent for storytelling, hooking readers frompage one with his characters' potential to do the unexpected. Thecompelling voice in which his stories about Del and Louise are toldartfully creates reader sympathy for a couple who recurrently flirt with crime; it's a voice that will remain in readers' minds long after thebook is closed." -- Janet Hutchings, Editor, Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine

"If there's a Raymond Carver of short crime fiction, Art Taylor would behim--but, you know, without the chain smoking and boozing." -- KeithRawson, LitReactor
