Reggie Levine, ex-boxer turned bouncer, and hapless hero, has barely recovered from his ordeal in Damn Dirty Apes
, when he is called back to action. Recruited to a retrieve a Chinese crested terrier from a fleapit roadside zoo, where the ugly effing showdog has been mistaken for the chupacabra, Reggie soon finds himself embroiled in a deadly criminal conspiracy involving neo-Nazi drug smugglers, a seedy used-car salesman, a wannabe serial killer, an ornery Vietnam veteran, a badass veterinarian, a freakishly endowed adult entertainment donkey named Enrique, and in an explosive cameo, an Academy Award winning Hollywood icon.
From Adam Howe, writer of Die Dog or Eat the Hatchet, Black Cat Mojo, and the winner of Stephen King’s On Writing contest, comes another hard-hitting slice of pulp Southern crime, 80s action, pop Americana, and pitch-black comedy.
“Like Lansdale on meth, or ’80s action-movie icon Shane Black on crack, I have yet to read anything by Howe that didn’t have me laughing so hard I wondered more than once if I might have sprained something vital inside of me. He’s done it again with Tijuana Donkey Showdown
. The only thing I hate about this guy’s books is the fact that, as soon as I finish one, there’s not another I can start right away. Dammit.”
– James Newman, author of Ugly As Sin, Odd Man Out, and Animosity
“Adam Howe has oodles of insane talent. Tijuana Donkey Showdown reads like the script of the greatest B-movie ever, written by the unholy offspring of Joe R. Lansdale and Jeff Strand, and directed by Uwe Boll. Howe is a purveyor of beautiful, ridiculous violence, and I hope the misadventures of Reggie Levine continue for a long time.”
– Pete Kahle, award-winning author of The Specimen
