The Soak

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A searing crime novel that introduces an exhilarating new voice in noir fiction that’s as sharp, cruel, and relentless as the story’s unforgettable hero.
Hobbs is an aging, professional thief who chases one last, big score into the eye of a Florida hurricane. He emerges hell-bent on out-running his own mortality and a ruthless FBI agent with a deadly agenda of her own.

"Richard Stark fans will relish heistmeister Hobbs in this well-plotted tale of robbery, murder and revenge." Publishers Weekly

"A dark, funny, pitch-perfect take on the heist novel and worthy of comparison to Richard Stark and Garry Disher." Scott Phillips, author of The Ice Harvest

"The Soak is tense, fast moving, intricately plotted and layered with the moral ambiguity of the best crime fiction." Garry Disher, multiple Ned Kelly Award winning author of the Wyatt novels

"Fast and brutal, gripping and ingenious, this tale of an analogue thief in a digital age had me locked in from page one." Stephen Gallagher, author of The Bedlam Detective

"An extraordinarily dark, twisting noir novel with crackling dialogue and action, featuring an aging anti-hero who should be checking out the Early Bird specials at a local restaurant, but instead is on a blood-soaked mission of revenge. Highly recommended… and you’ll never look at an AARP card the same way again." Brendan DuBois, Edgar award-winning author of the Lewis Cole mystery series

"A thoroughly engaging anatomy-of-a-heist style crime novel. Hobbs is wonderfully gritty and irascible, an old school pro, and yet charming in his own hard-boiled way." Victor Gischler, Edgar Award-nominated and Anthony Award-winning author of GUN MONKEYS

Customer Reviews

Good Neo-Noir

An armored car heist with a thousand and one things that could go wrong, and they do. A crooked FBI agent, a thief who should be retired, a young ambitious thief out to prove himself, a tropical storm, and other characters combine to make this a good crime/noir read. You want happy endings? Not a lot of them here.
