The trans-Atlantic writing team of Ken Bruen and Jason Starr are back with PIMP, the fourth novel in their Hard Case Crime comic-caper series featuring Max Fisher. This latest entry, which marks the 10th anniversary of the series since the debut novel, BUST (2006), finds the writing duo at the top of their satiric form.
Former drug kingpin Max Fisher has fallen upon hard times and finds himself posing as an Irishman working in a local pub in Portland. One night he discovers a new drug called PIMP (for Peyote, Insulin, Mescaline, and Psychosis). It has an exquisite high and is instantly addictive. Max immediately sees the drug as his entryway back into the big time. So he steals the formula and makes his way to New York devising a marketing plan to make PIMP the hottest drug on the street.
