Marlowe's Revenge (Paperback)
Dan Stuart delivers a pulpy, comic thriller filled with distinctly Southwestern characters.
Marlowe Billings returns to Tucson in the '90s to get clean and save a failing marriage. Staving off demons with countless rounds of golf, he stumbles into his hometown's crime-ridden underbelly, where old friends and a brewing cartel war threaten his sobriety, his sanity, and his life.
Marlowe's Revenge is sun-bleached desert noir at its finest. Violent, funny, weird, and 100% original. Count me a huge fan.--Tod Goldberg, New York Times bestselling author of Gangsterland
I want to thank the El Tiradito shrine that Marlowe Billings rides again. Dan Stuart was in one of my favorite bands, Green on Red, and now has created Marlowe Billings my favorite golf loving, ex-junkie, trouble-collecting miscreant. With Marlowe's Revenge, Dan Stuart proves once again he keeps getting better and better.--Willy Vlautin, award-winning author of The Motel Life
With his latest literary effort, former Green on Red frontman Dan Stuart offers a pulp meditation of bad men doing bad things, the hopeless and hapless that surround them, and the cascading nature of addiction and regret. Marlowe's Revenge is part murder mystery, part faded love story, part redemption tale (without much redemption). Beautiful, twisted, and real - this is high desert poetry about low people. As a memoirist and noirist, Stuart continues to be a goddamn revelation.--Bob Mehr, New York Times bestselling author of Trouble Boys: The True Story of the Replacements
