The Good and the Ghastly (2011)
James Boice
"Finding James Boice has been a revelation for me. His hard-bitten prose flies off the page at you like the cracking of a machine gun, and he infuses this violent, gritty and fast-paced novel with enough subtle satire and unexpected weirdness to keep you riveted right until you flip the final page."
