The Price You Pay: A novel | Aidan Truhen
3 posts | 4 read | 2 to read
In this audacious, lightning-paced thriller, a smart-mouthed, white-collar drug dealer--a hilariously irreverent antihero--seeks revenge when an unknown enemy takes out a contract on him. All is good in the life of Jack Price. His drug operation is the Amazon of cocaine trafficking, and no one can breach his complex security system. But then: His downstairs neighbor is professionally executed. That the murder is a sign for Jack becomes perfectly clear a few days later when he arrives home and is beaten to a bloody pulp by a squad of enforcers. Now revenge is on his mind, and he reaches out to his ex-Soviet associate. Unfortunately, she's just taken a gig with the Seven Demons, the most feared underground assassination squad in the world--and Jack is their next target. Anyone else would disappear as soon as they learned they were being targeted by the Seven Demons. But Jack Price cannot abide a betrayal. With the help of his contacts in a deep web network called Poltergeist, he fakes a getaway and begins scouting the Demons. He intends to take them out one by one...

A violently funny caper in the mode of Tim Dorsey. Our anti-hero is a discreet cocaine lord targeted by an international criminal ring. He strikes back to devastating effect. This is an over-the-top crime spree narrated in first person stream-of-consciousness. It's clever and hilarious.

What a fantastic read! Jack Price is the antihero I never knew I needed. This is a book about terrible people doing terrible things, but it‘s so well done and in such a unique style that you just enjoy the ride. It was also hilarious- I was laughing at things I definitely should not have been laughing at. As a side note, “LUCILLE!” #arc
