TREACHEROUS: GRIFTERS, RUFFIANS AND KILLERS are the collected short stories of Chester Himes Award winner Gary Phillips. In this collection you’ll find double crossers getting crossed up, two-bit hucksters looking to make that one last con, revolutionaries on the run, dying hitmen with explosive secrets and zombies lusting for cocaine.
“[These] tales feature Phillips unfaltering ear for contemporary urban dialogue and patois, relentless pacing that grabs you from the opening sentence — oh, and plenty of sex and violence, too …” —Alan Cranis, bookgasm.com
“Most of the 21 highly entertaining selections in this new collection also spotlight the hip urban scene Phillips has made his own.” —Publishers Weekly
