Scoundrels: Tales of Greed, Murder and Financial Crimes by Gary Phillips (ed.)
In SCOUNDRELS, an all-original anthology from Down & Out Books featuring bestselling Edgar and Shamus award-winning writers such as SJ Rozan, David Corbett and Kelli Stanley, you’ll read stories of desperate grifters, brokers hedging big bets for the big take, schemers working the long con for the sure money, used car salesman with golden dreams and rusted hopes, crooked lawyers and bent clients, one percenters hustling for that last half-percent, kind-hearted killers and the lonely hearted who tell themselves any lie as the double down for the long count.
SCOUNDRELS: TALES OF GREED, MURDER AND FINANCIAL CRIMES is available from Amazon.
“Much will be made of the timeliness SCOUNDRELS, and with good reason: these days Enron executives and securities brokers are far scarier than serial killers. But SCOUNDRELS is more than just timely — it’s a great read, a collection of fabulous stories by remarkable authors. Bravo.”
— Marcus Sakey, author of the TWO DEATHS OF DANIEL HAYES and host of Hidden City on the Travel Channel
Gary Phillips, SCOUNDRELS editor and contributor is also the author of a collection of all his own short stories, Treacherous: Grifters, Ruffians and Killers.
