Last Call for the Living

Peter Farris

Forge Books

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.

Few cars on the interstate except for a lone state trooper or delivery van. Tractor-trailers rumbled. Eighteen-wheeled earthquakes heading south toward the Piedmont. Passing by low hills and valleys, the exits marked by diners and gas stations and roads that disappeared behind kudzu-covered pastures and thickets of pine tree

REVIEWS

Praise for Last Call for the Living

"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
