The Deadly Kiss-Off

(2019)
(The second book in the Glen and Stan series)
A novel by

 
 
Glen and Stan, the Odd Couple of scamdom, are back from their Big Get-Even adventure with another get-rich-quick-or-go-down-in-flames scheme.

As part of their trafficking in counterfeit merch, they are looking to turn a few pallets of Grade Z computer chips into some military hardware sure to interest dictators and despots and drug lords around the globe. Bankrolled by a greedy local crime boss, they hope to promote a half-genius, half-addlepated invention from a naive and principled inventor into a bonanza. But no one ever counts on complications arising from a wayward wife, some sexy Eurotrash go-betweens, and a lonely entrepreneurial girlfriend who finds her native tropical isle conducive to a troublesome loosening of morals. Add in a most unconventional explosives expert, and you have a caper half hilarious, half deadly, and 100 percent entertaining.

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"Gangsters and canoodling bombshells, goodhearted galoots, sinister gadgets, and an African giant pouched rat can add up to only one thing: Glen and Stan are back in this new hardboiled thriller with a heart by Paul Di Filippo. Do yourself a favor: make with the feet to your favorite joint and scam a couple of hours with The Deadly Kiss-Off, the funniest caper to come down the pike this year." - Elizabeth Hand

"Like its predecessor The Big Get-Even, the opening novel in the series, The Deadly Kiss-Off is a wild, forceful, and fierce expedition through the low-life lived as the high-life. The author's crew of miscreants, like Westlake's Dortmunder Gang, is lovable and pitiable, the grand scheme of this novel burns as a plan gone agley. Paul Di Filippo fills Westlake's missing place in the suspense canon triumphantly." - Barry N Malzberg
