When I read author David Dubrow's blurb regarding this novella, I immediately bought a copy.
(the best buck that I've spent, in a long, long time!)
Here is Dubrow's blurb, in hopes that it will coerce you into buying a copy for yourself:
"Adam Howe’s Gator Bait is a steamy, disquieting piece of bayou noir that you can’t help but eat all in one sitting. It won’t settle your stomach, but it will stay with you long after you’ve digested it."
That blurb sums this novella up perfectly!
The only other thing that I want to say, before I go looking into more of Howe's work, is that the whole time that I was reading this novella, I kept picturing the story in 'Sin City' style-effects, in my head... a fun, fun read!
