Todd Robinson - Rough Trade

Signed First Edition

When a waitress at The Cellar asks Boo and Junior to scare off her roommate Dana’s harassing ex-boyfriend, Byron, Boo’s white-knight impulses kick in and they perform the job with gusto—leaving Byron bloodied but very much alive. So when Byron is found dead, they’re shocked. They’re even more shocked when they learn that nothing is what they originally thought, and they're being held accountable in the death.

With Junior called in for questioning, Boo determines to clear their names by finding Byron’s true killer. It’s a quest in which Boo will have to face down crooked cops, crazed guard dogs, a rival security crew, the Irish mob and—worst of all—his own ingrained prejudices.
