Pay up or die!
Used-car salesman Gary Braswell owes thousands to a violent loan shark. Desperate to save his skin, he joins forces with a ruthless Russian crime syndicate that doesn’t take too kindly to being double-crossed. As his life spirals further out of control, Gary’s inflated ego can only land him in more trouble.
A whirlpool of murder, sex, drugs and real estate, SOLD is hilarious and dark
Dodgy real estate agents, nouveau riche Russian émigrés, corrupt federal cops and femme fatales, SOLD’s characters jump off the page.
Praise for SOLD
- A neatly executed work of comic grunge
- Action packed and fast paced.
- Numerous storylines converge in a brilliantly constructed ending and I dearly wish a sequel is on the cards.
The Gold Coast swelters in record temperatures, and car salesman Gary Braswell’s hot under the collar. With sales at rock-bottom, he’s up to his neck in debt to loan shark Jocko Mackenzie. If the loan’s not repaid, there’s more than Gary’s kneecaps at stake – his long-suffering wife is also in peril.
Gary turns his skills to real estate and is soon embroiled in the murky world of money laundering. With the federal police sniffing around and Jocko on his tail, Gary concocts an audacious scam.
Success means money – lots of it. Failure means death. Can hard-drinking, cocaine-snorting Gary pull it off?
