The Hard Bounce

by Todd Robinson

Boo Malone lost everything when he was sent to St. Gabriel's Home for Boys. There, he picked up a few key survival skills; a wee bit of an anger management problem; and his best friend for life, Junior. Now adults, Boo and Junior have a combined weight of 470 pounds (mostly Boo's), about ten grand in tattoos (mostly Junior's), and a talent for wisecracking banter. Together, they provide security for The Cellar, a Boston nightclub where the bartender Audrey doles out hugs and scoldings for her favorite misfits, and the night porter, Luke, expects them to watch their language. At last Boo has found a family. But when Boo and Junior are hired to find Cassandra, a well-to-do runaway slumming among the authority-shy street kids, Boo sees in the girl his own long-lost younger sister. And as the case deepens with evidence that Cassie is being sexually exploited, Boo's blind desire for justice begins to push his surrogate family's loyalty to the breaking point. Cassie's life depends on Boo's determination to see the case through, but that same determination just might finally drive him and Junior apart. What's looking like an easy payday is turning into a hard bounce--for everyone.

Rough Trade

by Todd Robinson

The long-awaited second novel in Todd Robinson's Anthony Award-nominated Boo and Junior series When a waitress at The Cellar asks Boo and Junior to scare off her roommate Dana's harassing ex-boyfriend, Byron, Boo's white-knight impulses kick in and they perform the job with gusto--leaving Byron bloodied but very much alive. So when Byron is found dead, they're shocked. They're even more shocked when they learn that nothing is what they originally thought, and they're being held accountable in the death. With Junior called in for questioning, Boo determines to clear their names by finding Byron's true killer. It's a quest in which Boo will have to face down crooked cops, crazed guard dogs, a rival security crew, the Irish mob and--worst of all--his own ingrained prejudices. Action-packed, outrageously funny, and brutally honest, Rough Trade brings back crime fiction's favorite bouncers and takes them well out of their comfort zone.
