Aces and Eights by Philip Garlington
Approx. 76,710 words.
Published on May 25, 2011.
From the hard copy blurb: "Aces and Eights is a novel about a world in which the only morality is force, and the only heroes those strong enough to pummel their way through the chaos." Sounds good. "Two ex-Nam buddies now San Francisco cops and part of an anti-terror unit, are looking for underworld connections to smuggle prime Chinese heroin. Buoyant, mean, funny, tough, anarchistic."
