Publisher's Summary

From the hallucinatory noir novella Go Deep to the twisted short stories "Necessary Women" and "Remmy Rothstein Toes the Line", this collection showcases the New York Times best-selling author's dark humor, limitless imagination, and masterly command of voice and character.
Go Deep
Growing up dirt poor, Charlie Lam worked his ass off to make something of himself, no thanks to his deadbeat father or his long-suffering mother. And now a lot of people depend on Charlie: by his last count, 68 employees at his Atlanta auto dealership, 11 shiftless brothers and sisters, an ungrateful wife, a spoiled daughter, and a shameless girlfriend. Who could really blame him for wanting a little extra?
The arrangement is simple: Charlie picks up a suit from the dry cleaner's. In the suit pocket is the name of a very important man. The next day that man walks into the dealership and drives out in a new car, and Charlie gets a fat envelope full of cash.
"Necessary Women"
In a border town between Georgia and Alabama, in a three-room house made of cement block, a 14-year-old girl watches her mother die. Her father is a long-haul trucker, away for weeks, sometimes months, at a time. Her mother, with two menial jobs cleaning restrooms and working nights at the laundry, had been just 30.
A week before she died, noticing her daughter getting attention from a boy, the girl's mother warned her not to make the same mistakes she had.
"Remmy Rothstein Toes the Line"
As an intrepid adjudicator of world records, Mindy Patel has met lots of strange people in lots of strange places. But they're no match for the swampers of the Georgia bayou. Mindy has braved the oppressive August heat in search of Remmy Rothstein, who they call the "Cajun Jew."

Slaughter is King

Or Queen. Whatever. Not a big fan of the short story but these three tales are a mixed bag of OMG, WTF and ROFL. Just like all things her book had to come to an end. But nobody says I can't start from page 1 and do it again.

Not the best...

Loved the first story...not so much the other two...the last being mildly annoying. I'm pleased these were SHORT stories.
