David Schow's Gun Work out from Hard Case Crime

The mail brought the newest entry in the Hard Case Crime line, David J. Schow's Gun Work. It looks absolutely thrilling, but I'm truly sorry to say that I don't have the time right now to read it. Will try in the coming weeks, however. (I also received the ARC for Charles Ardai's Fifty-To-One, which is famously the fiftieth Hard Case Crime. Here's to you, guys.)

Here's the opening line from Gun Work that will hook any reader:

How Barney came to occupy a room on the wrong side of management in a hostage hotel deep inside Mexico City had to do with his friend Carl Ledbetter and one of those scary phone calls that come not always in the middle of the night, but whenever you are most asleep and foggy.

Gotta love that cover (by Joe DeVito), too, even though it's strictly anything but PC.

With King and Schow, one wonders when there will be a HC Lansdale...

Yeah, that would be great!
