The Terror of Living by Urban Waite

The-Terror-Of-Living_209.jpg urban waite.jpg

Phil Hunt, a full time horse rancher and part-time drug mule, finds himself up the proverbial creek without a paddle after losing both a shipment of cocaine and a Vietnamese drug courier whose belly is loaded with $90,000 worth of heroin. Since making good decisions isn't one of Phil's assets, he decides to stand and fight against the angry drug dealers instead of fleeing with his wife Nora. Or maybe Phil was really fighting the good fight all along? Or is Phil one of those rare individuals where his brawn outweighs his brains?

You'll have to read this volatile novel to find out what happens to Phil, but be forewarned, this is a bloody, perverse novel that features a professional killer with an affinity for knives, a deputy sheriff with a past, graphic scenes of horse mutilation, and body appendage amputations. In short, this novel packs the punch of a Mike Tyson left hook. It's the literary equivalent of sticking a well-meaning drug mule into a blender with a ruthless drug cartel, a merciless killer- for- hire, a concerned wife, a whole lot of blood and a few automatic weapons and pouring out violence juice. Cormac McCarthy beware, this is a country for young writers.
