Random House's Alibi imprint announced in 2013 that Brewer would write a crime trilogy under his new pen name, Max Austin. The first one, DUKE CITY SPLIT, will be published in April 2014.

Review by: Sean Patrick Reardon on Jan. 27, 2012 :
From the hilarious opening line, to the great twist at the end, this was a great read. Eddie joins a long list of Steve Brewer's characters that entertain like no other. The dialogue, situations, and story delivery are second to none. A real treat, that I highly recommend.
