Bill is a conman with a taste for high-end cars, beautiful suits, and top-shelf liquor. But he's getting tired of the cons he needs to maintain that lifestyle-and he's sick of the violence that's sometimes part of the job.
Bill's girlfriend Fiona doesn't have a problem with violence, though. She'll crush anyone who stands in her way-and some days, it seems like the whole world wants a piece of her. She loves Bill, but she's tired of cleaning up after him.
When Bill decides to "borrow" a couple million from one of New York City's most vicious gangs and flee for the tropics, it puts their relationship to the test-and while they're working out their issues, they'll also need to fend off crooked cops, dimwitted bouncers, and an irate assassin in the midst of the world's weirdest midlife crisis.
"Love & Bullets" is the story of a 21st century Bonnie & Clyde, a wisecracking duo who'll blast their way from Brooklyn to Cuba and back in order to stay alive. It's a wild ride.
Praise for Love & Bullets: Megabomb Edition
"Nick Kolakowski takes us on another incredibly visceral and vivacious ride among the lowlife and the lovers that populate his unique imagination. Love and Bullets is vintage Nick . Funny, fast paced and just tinged with just enough darkness to make you afraid for his characters. Not to be missed!"
-S.A. Cosby NYT's best selling author of Razorblade Tears and Blacktop Wasteland
"This one's for die-hard Kolakowski fans"
"Dark, bleak and in-your-face, take-no-prisoners prose, everything you want in crime fiction."
-Frank Bill, author of Donnybrook and Crimes in Southern Indiana
