Now This Sounds Like Fun!

Fellow Killer Year member Marc Lecard's VINNIE'S HEAD is in bookstores today! Get it HERE.

In Vinnie’s Head, Long Island petty criminal Johnnie LoDuco snags his best friend’s head while fishing for flounder, and attracts the attention of some very unpleasant people. Is it the head they want, or Johnnie?

"For those of us who like our crime writing with a dose of dark humor, Vinnie's Head is the ticket. Great characters, pace, style, and story -- Marc Lecard has chops!" -- Christopher Moore, New York Times Bestselling Author of A Dirty Job and You Suck

"If you want a blend of 'Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia' and 'The Sopranos,' but with dazzling writing and mesmerising characters, this book is it and so much, much more, a dark diamond of that rarity, sheer readability. You don't realize how well crafted the writing is til you've read the novel in one straight sitting. Debuts don't come any better than this." --Ken Bruen, author of The Dramatist and American Skin

"Marc Lecard's savagely funny, fast-paced debut is -- forgive me -- head and shoulders over the competition. You'll love Johnnie LoDuco, the ultimate fall guy who tries to help an old friend, only to find himself way over his you-know-what. I can't wait to read the next twisted thing Lecard fishes out of the dark lake of his imagination." --Duane Swierzynski, author of The Wheelman and The Blonde

Love the title and love how it ties into the story. Clever.

Brett, I was reading the Stars & Stripes this morning and in an insert (Scene) there is a story about Eva Mendes, who is in the movie 'Ghost Rider' with Nick Cage. It mentioned that she just signed to do the crime thriller, 'Cleaner' (with Samuel L. Jackson and Ed Harris) in Berlin. Any connection to your story.

Steve...unfortunately no. But the good thing is my book will come out before their movie does.
