Gangsters, Detectives, Madmen and Murderers is a classicand modern short story collection of strange, occasionally bloodthirsty, and often amusing tales about the characters and experiences that lurk at the fringes of our lives. From a man who will bet his own child on his dog, to a madman who is infectious and a cameo by Lee Child's most famous assassin, these stories areas memorable as they are mischievous.
"It seems natural that this generation should embrace the short story as its literary art form. We're more at home with twitter and the Evening Standard than Homer, barely finding time for a quick whip through a novella on a sunny afternoon (sigh). And with the quick fire voice of its generation Spoken Ink embraces this without compunction." (Notes on the Underground)
