Recommended Read: Riding Shotgun: And Other American Cruelties by Andy Rausch

Andy Rausch’s  Riding Shotgun: And Other American Cruelties  is a marvellous collection that consists of three violent and blackly comic novellas. Prohibition era gangsters meet wild west outlaws in the first story, ‘Easy-Peezy‘, ‘Riding Shotgun’ is the tale of a crime fiction author who is forced to commit murder, and in ‘$crilla‘ – my personal favourite –  a failed hip-hop group kidnap an obnoxious record mogul. Each story is packed with more great characters and sharp dialogue than many novels and all would make cracking films. Riding Shotgun: And Other American Cruelties is a hell of an enjoyable ride.
