Nine Toes In The Grave by Eric Beetner

Reese has tried to live a good, honest life. But life has other plans. From the boss’s wife who wants him to do something terrible to the sleazebags trying to set him up, when things go downhill, they go fast and Reese finds himself fighting for his life as the hard luck piles on. His only way out might be to throw away the moral code he’s been living by, face trouble head on and prove you can only push a man so far before he pushes back–hard.

“If dead bodies, a dystopian view of the world and whip-crack dialogue are your thing, then this tale may just be for you.” — Crime Fiction Lover

“Beetner is an old school talent, a crime writer’s crime writer like Gil Brewer (although, in my humble opinion, he’s better than Brewer), who writes stuff that is fast and funny and dark all at once.” — Jake Hinkson, author of No Tomorrow and Hell on Church Street
