Turbo Vlost is back—depressed and drinking too much while he slices through the fetid lives of an immigrant family living the American dream, trying to determine why misery and remorse torment every member. Turbo must identify the core of the rot before the family implodes or the Russian mob exacts violent retribution for transgressions past and present.


“David Duffy has done it again: given us a smart, morally complex page-turner featuring ex-KGB agent turned New York City private eye, Turbo Vlost. Like Marlowe before him, Turbo dives deep as he tangles with Russian oligarchs and ghosts from Stalin’s gulag. He goes to some dark places but never wavers because truth matters. A fast-paced, witty, bruising, always thoughtful read.” ~ Leonard Rosen, Edgar Nominated Author of ALL CRY CHAOS

“I loved David Duffy’s first book, LAST TO FOLD, and I’m here to tell you IN FOR A RUBLE is every bit as good. If you don’t yet know Turbo Vlost and his friends — and enemies — you’re a lucky reader, because now you get to meet them. Don’t wait!” ~ SJ Rozan, Edgar-winning author of GHOST HERO


David Duffy spent 25 years in the corporate and financial public relations business, based in New York and London. This experience turned out to be good practice for writing fiction. Along the way he helped bring the Antiques Roadshow to PBS and income tax to Poland. This is his second Turbo Vlost novel. The first, LAST TO FOLD, was nominated for an Edgar Award for Best First Novel. He and his wife live in New York’s Hudson River Valley.
