Nick Valentine has problems. He’s a drunken ex-cop who lives in his shabby office, hangs out at strip clubs, and has only one real friend - Frank Sinatra. But he’s one of the best private investigators in Saint Louis. So when an inept crew robs a credit union, only Valentine can figure out who made off with the millions - because sometimes solving a crime takes a hard guy who’s not afraid to work outside the law.
Valentine swerves through the underbelly of Saint Louis looking for answers, and with every law he breaks, every drink he takes, and every OxyContin he snorts, he lurches closer to finding the truth - or floating facedown in the Missouri River.
Brutally funny and wild, this no-holds-barred crime novel reads like Elmore Leonard on meth: crazy and addictive - you’ll want more.

"Frank Sinatra in a Blender is a perfect mix of hard-boiled fiction and pulp noir - with a perfect mix of Hunter S. Thompson. To say I loved this book is an understatement." (Brad Wyman, Hollywood film producer of Freeway and Monster)
"Frank Sinatra in a Blender is a darkly shining example of psycho noir that takes it to the wall and then straight through. Stark, startling, extreme, haunting, and even poignant at times, the work of Matt McBride is going to be talked about for years to come." (Tom Piccirilli, Bram Stoker Award-winning author)
"Matthew McBride makes Mickey Spillane read like Barbara Cartland. If you’re trying to give up coffee and cigarettes but aren’t quite ready to give up the oxy, Frank Sinatra in a Blender is the book for you." (Scott Phillips, author of The Ice Harvest)
