"Bullets, Booze and Bastards"
Frank Sinatra in a Blender by Matthew McBride
Sometimes solving a crime takes a hard guy who’s not afraid to work outside the law, and PI Nick Valentine swerves through the underbelly of St. Louis looking for answers. With every law he breaks, every drink he takes, and every Oxycontin he snorts, Valentine lurches closer to finding the truth. Or floating facedown in the Missouri River. Brutally funny, wild, this no-holds-barred crime novel reads like Elmore Leonard on meth. Crazy and addictive, you’ll want more.
Raves for Frank Sinatra in a Blender
“Read [Frank Sinatra in a Blender] in a day. Loved it!”
“Matthew McBride makes Mickey Spillane read like Barbara Cartland. If you’re trying to give up coffee and cigarettes but aren’t quite ready to give up the Oxy, Frank Sinatra in a Blender is the book for you.”
“I enjoyed the fuck out of this book.”
“Matthew McBride is one of those rare writers who can have you reeling in shock one minute, and laughing out loud the next. Frank Sinatra in a Blender is a prime example. This book is a fun, twisted romp through McBride’s uniquely warped imagination. I loved every minute of it.”
“Frank Sinatra in a Blender is a darkly shining example of psycho noir that takes it to the wall and then straight on through. Stark, startling, extreme, haunting, and even poignant at times, the work of Matt McBride is going to be talked about for years to come.”
“There’s a great line toward the end of this book where Nick Valentine says, ‘A chainsaw cuts best when it’s operated at full throttle.’ And that’s what this book is: a chainsaw operated at full throttle. And damn if he’s not right, it does work best. This is a violent hell-trip of a book full of drugs and drink and bad people you like as soon as you meet ’em. Make no mistake, McBride is the king of Chainsaw Noir, and there’s no one else who can step to the throne.”
“Frank Sinatra in A Blender is a perfect mix of hardboiled fiction and pulp noir—with a dash of Hunter S. Thompson. To say I loved this book is an understatement.”
