"Jimmy Veeder and Bobby Maves are back at it, two years after the events of Dove Season--they're not exactly the luckiest guys in the Imperial Valley, but, hey, they win more fights than they lose. Settled on his own farmland and living like a true family man after years of irresponsible fun, Jimmy's got a straight life cut out for him. But he's knocking years off that life thanks to fun-yet-dangerous Bobby's booze-addled antics--especially now that Bobby is single, volatile, profane as ever, and bored as hell. When Bobby's teenage daughter goes missing, he and Jimmy take off on a misadventure that starts out as merely unfortunate and escalates to downright calamitous. Bobby won't hesitate to kick a hornets' nest to get the girl to safety, but when the rescue mission goes riotously sideways, the duo's grit--and loyalty to each other--is put to the test."--Publisher's website.

Jimmy Veeder has finally settled down, completing his dramatic transformation from hell-raiser to family man. With his new wife, Angie, and eight-year-old son, Juan, he lives the quiet life. No trouble, no problems. Or so he thought. But this is Jimmy Veeder's Fiasco, after all. The night after his wedding, Jimmy is lured right back into a world of danger and mayhem when childhood friend Tom�s Morales, the current crime lord of Mexicali, turns up on his doorstep offering information about the whereabouts of his son's grandfather, for whom Jimmy has been searching for years. Jimmy and Angie head to Mexico-one part honeymoon, one part expedition to find Juan's grandfather-accompanied by old pals Bobby Maves and Griselda. The trip immediately careens into chaos when they find themselves shadowed by thugs, shot at by cartel soldiers, and forced into a confrontation with a violent, volatile drug lord. The fight spreads from Sinaloa back to Jimmy's doorstep, putting everything Jimmy cares about directly in the crosshairs.

There's gold in them thar hills, or more precisely, in Arizona Chocolate Mountains, where one hundred years ago a miner stashed a king's ransom of the stuff. But times have changed. The world has changed. And now the Chocolate Mountains are the home of the largest military artillery range in the world. Harry is living on disability and getting liquored up and beaten down. Frank is a feisty old-timer battling cancer and a domineering daughter. And Ricky is a good kid in a bad spot, doing everything for family. Together they are staking what little they have left on a dangerous quest to the Big Maria Mine and the gold that can offer them a new beginning. Unfortunately a meth-dealing biker wants a piece, a trigger-happy AWOL soldier wants to play chicken in a live minefield, two stubborn burros want to go home, a starving mountain lion wants his dinner, and the US Army wants to rain on our heroes' parade with real bombs. When you are all out of crazy ideas, you've got to try the stupid ones.

Andy Destra is a mostly honest cop in the most notoriously corrupt and crime-ridden city in America: Auction City. After discovering explosive information that reveals corruption within the highest levels of the police department, Andy is kicked off the force, framed, and disgraced, left to wage a lonely one-man crusade against conspiracies he can't prove. Andy's investigation plunges him into a blackly comic maelstrom of one-armed gang members, slick pickpockets, criminal syndicates, hired mercenaries, escaped convicts, sewer dwellers, and one sinister ice cream truck. At the same time, he must contend with a mystery closer to home: the true identity of his parents, his most unshakeable obsession. Understanding their past may be the key to Auction City's future as it teeters on the brink of chaos. If Andy can't solve this case, the Floodgate will fail...and his city will burn.

In the Bakken oil field of North Dakota, they call the new guys "worms."Ferret is a worm from Alabama, trying to kickstart a new life for his family, while back home his in-laws whisper break-up songs in his wife Dee Dee's ear.His boss, a shadowy old guy called Pancrazio, drags in Ferret, Gene Handy, and two roustabouts from Oklahoma to deal with a new meth empire on the prairie. Meanwhile, a reservation cop keeps a close eye on the big picture.All Ferret wants is some easy money and the love of his family. But he quickly finds out that there's danger around every corner, in every drill, truck and train car. And if the machines or chemicals don't get him, then the other roughnecks will. Because beneath the dirt and grease, nobody is what they seem.Also by Anthony Neil Smith, the Spinetingler Award-winning police thriller, All The Young Warriors"a brilliant book, possibly the best novel of the year." - Les Edgerton"written with a sureness of hand and a depth of character that are impressive. A highly accomplished crime novel exposing an often unseen world." - The Big Issue"All The Young Warriors will grip readers who enjoy the chance to slip into a foreign culture and also those who want a page-turning thriller" - Spinetingler Magazine"a powerful story that is both riveting and meaningful" - Crime Fiction Lover"this book is a classic in the making" - I Meant To Read That"All The Young Warriors is a pretty rare beast, a clever page-turner. It deserves to be a bestseller and has film adaptation stamped all over it." - Loitering With Intent"a courageous novel that raises a lot of pertinent questions" - Dead End Follies"Smith's version of Minnesota is no Lake Wobegon; the inhabitants are refreshingly made up entirely of the deranged, the damaged, and the doomed. If you can picture the intellectual and physical mayhem that might have resulted from a Jim Thompson and Harry Crews collaboration, you'd be on the right track. But Anthony Neil Smith is his own writer — and a very fine one, indeed." - Booklist

STORIES FROM THE FIRST FOUR ISSUES OF BLOOD & TACOS-COMPLETE IN ONE VOLUME FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME! Gird your loins, boys and girls, for a literary tour of force. Gird them! Once, paperback racks were full of men's adventure series. Next to the Louis L'Amours sat the Executioner, the Destroyer, the Death Merchant, and other action heroes hell-bent on bringing America back from the brink. That time was the 1970s and '80s-a bygone era filled with wide-eyed innocence and mustaches. Those stories are here again! Blood & Tacos has brought back the action, the fun, and the adventure. Also, the mustaches. We are proud to present the Silencer, Father Dukes, the Albino Wino, Studs Winslow, Battleground U.S.S.A., Tiger Team Bravo, L.A.N.D.B.O.A.T. (the Boat That Goes on Land), and many more-a veritable piranha tank full of heroic heroes. Blood & Tacos: The Beginning features stories "discovered" by Ray Banks, Matthew C. Funk, Rob Kroese, Stephen Mertz, Gary Phillips, Johnny Shaw, Josh Stallings, Todd Robinson, and a slew of other killer writers. Ride the tiger! And remember, if it's too cheesy, it's a quesadilla!
