Remmie Miken is starting over after a bad run. He’s got himself a crappy apartment in the big city and a job hustling burgers and fries. One night Remmie makes nice with a neighborhood gangster. So begins his quixotic pursuit of a whore-on-the-run and ten grand in cash. Headed south into Baja, Remmie brushes shoulders with lowdown crooks, a Catholic priest, cartel enforcers, a strawberry picker, and a wild-eyed expat.

The Bad Kind of Lucky is a twisted comedic noir that follows Remmie straight into the void.

Blurb

“In The Bad Kind of Lucky, Matt Phillips leads us on a road trip from hell. This novella delivers dynamite action and humor in equal doses: terse insights and a real noir ending. Remmie’s journey will knock you six ways from Sunday.” —Rusty Barnes, author of Ridgerunner and The Last Danger

“A savage excursion into low-life criminality…This blood-pumping, border-hopping, bullet-spitting thrill-ride is Phillips’ best book yet.” —Tom Leins, author of Meat Bubbles & Other Stories and Repetition Kills You

“This triumph of a book will take you on a journey with a great cast of characters…all in pursuit of a car, money and a beautiful woman—the ruin of many men. Will any of them be left standing? The release of a new Matt Phillips book should be a major event marked on the calendar of all noir fans—outstanding!” —Aidan Thorn, author of When the Music’s Over and Rival Sons
