For bank teller Charlie Colquitt it was another Saturday. For Hobe Hicklin, an ex-con with nothing to lose, it was another score. For Hobe’s drug-addled, sex-crazed girlfriend, it was more lust, violence, and drugs. But Hicklin’s first mistake was double-crossing his partners in the Aryan Brotherhood. His second was taking a hostage. He and Charlie could hide out for only so long before Hicklin’s past catches up to them. Hot on Hicklin’s trail are a pair of Brotherhood soldiers, ready to burn a path of murder and mayhem to get revenge. GBI Special Agent Sallie Crews and Sheriff Tommy Lang catch the case, and soon Crews is making some dangerous connections. For hard-drinking, despondent Lang, rescuing Charlie might be the key to personal salvation.
In Last Call for the Living, a young bank teller is taken hostage by a member of the Aryan Brotherhood after a deadly heist goes awry.

But in this riveting narrative, nothing is as it seems… A backwoods fairy tale of fate and flight, Last Call for the Living is a ferociously authentic debut from a fearless new talent.
"Last Call for the Living is the greatest bank heist novel since The Getaway and The Friends of Eddie Coyle—perhaps the greatest ever.... Farris’s writing is reminiscent of Stephen Hunter and Cormac McCarthy at their brutal best."
—Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author of Impact
"Last Call for the Living literally explodes with tension. It is a vividly real, hard-driving and driven story that reads like a thing possessed."
—Whitley Strieber, New York Times bestselling author of Hybrids
