Frank was a man who wanted the finer things in life but was not interested in getting any way but the wrong one and the chosen partners in crime left a lot to be desired. Frank was determined and setup pretty much by his trusted friend unfortunately his girlfriend didn't reveal certain things to him so he had to find out the hard way his friend was a Rat. I received an copy as a gift from the author without obligation. I am providing an honest review.

Too much sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll for me!

This prequel novella, to the Lagotti family series, looks at the friendship between hustler, Frank and school-friend, Louis Verona. The boys have a habit of committing robberies and now want to up their game. I’m sure it will be appreciated by many readers, but it’s not my scene.

I received this book as an Arc from the author. This is my first book by this author and it’s really great! It’s funny and graphic. It’s about a guy who’s trying to get rich fast, in all the wrong ways. Highly recommended!

This is a short story but it serves to introduce th main characters in the Ligotti Family series. The events described are referenced in the later books, so it is best, though not mandatory to read this one first.

It's a short book. Planning a quick in and out robbery of the local pharmacy- but you really need to make sure that your partner is committed to the task. Good characters, well written.
