Uncle Dust by Rob Pierce by Rob Pierce

On January 22, All Due Respect Books will release Uncle Dust, by Rob Pierce, an incredibly vivid portrait of the day-to-day life of a career criminal.

Dustin loves to rob banks. Dustin loves to drink. Dustin loves his women. Dustin loves loyalty. He might even love his adopted nephew Jeremy. And, he sometimes gets a little too enthusiastic in his job doing collections for local bookies–so, sometimes, he loves to hurt people. Told in the first person, Uncle Dust is a fascinating look inside the mind of a hard, yet very complicated criminal.

I was imprisoned for bank robbery, where I read plenty of novels with a bank robber as the protagonist. Only a few writers entertained me with killer dialogue. I even contacted Elmore Leonard when I was paroled, told him crime writer to crime writer that he understood criminal dialogue real swell. Here’s the thing: Had I read “Uncle Dust” while I was incarcerated I would’ve got out and contacted Rob Pierce before Elmore. The story and dialogue in “Uncle Dust” captured so much of that world and circumstance in all its squalid glory. Made me wish I’d done time with tough guy Dustin. I thoroughly enjoyed our criminal hero’s mind as he observed the world, and himself, through a cynical thief’s lens. And I think you will too.

– Joe Loya, author of the critically-acclaimed memoir, The Man Who Outgrew His Prison Cell: Confessions of A Bank Robber.
