Riot Load

"Fans of gonzo noir will find a lot to like." —Publishers Weekly

Murder Boy

"The balance of the comedic and the dramatic in Quertermous's work is a rare treat, reading like a deliciously blood-soaked crime novel rewritten by Christopher Moore. Try the first sentence of MURDER BOY, and then tell me if I'm wrong." --Michael Koryta
