Parlor City Paradise by Michael Sova

Parlor City Paradise200Skid Row has been on his own since the age of fourteen. He gets by well enough, but thinks he’d like more out of life than an occasional toke, his dead end job and a rented room at the Y.   Bullfrog had loving parents and all the benefits of the upper middle class. Then, his world was turned tragically upside-down.

He lost everything that had any importance to him and became a drifter, disillusioned and without any real direction. He and Skid Row cross paths, and a disastrous first meeting develops into an unlikely friendship.  They hatch a scheme that could be the answer to all their prayers. Instead, they end up at odds with a low level crime boss and his muscle bound partner, and being homeless and unemployed soon becomes the least of their problems.

Author of the high octane thriller A Shot at Redemption, Michael Sova returns with a captivating new suspense novel set in Binghamton, New York, a once affluent city that fell on hard times and was recently listed among the top five most depressing places in America.  Reminiscent of the widely popular Carl Hiaasen series, Parlor City Paradise takes seedy characters and even seedier situations and gives them a clever, often humorous and always entertaining twist.
