Everglade, by Greg Barth — Fifth installment in the Selena series
Praise for Greg Barth and Everglade:
Vicki Hendricks, author of Miami Purity – “Reminiscent of Larry Brown’s Fay, but less innocent and more violent, Selena combines fine writing and an indelible character to help fill the gap of female protagonists in the world of noir.”
Will Viharo, author of Love Songs Are Too Violent For Me – “This series is a literary legend in the making.”
Tony Knighton, author of Three Hours Past Midnight – “Mister Barth writes well – hard charging and fast paced.”
Eryk Pruitt, author of Hashtag and Dirtbags – “Greg Barth cooked up something mean and served it up and I hope none of you choke on it because it’s mighty tasty.”
After 18 months under the thumb of a local cartel, Selena is ready for a change. Her self-destructive lifestyle and criminal enterprise have put strains on both her relationships and her health. But getting out won’t be easy. Selena’s operation is too lucrative to let go, and this is a business where the only way out is retirement with flowers and a hearse. When tough posturing turns into a pissing match, Selena escalates things to a war of attrition. With no escape in sight, Selena must destroy her most formidable enemy yet – herself.
Greg Barth is the author of Bona Fide Jobs, Where Moth and Rust Corrupt, as well as Selena and three other follow-ups Diesel Therapy, Suicide Lounge, and Road Carnage. He lives and writes in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
