Reminiscent of Goodfellas, American Trash is a gritty tale of organized crime. Only in this story, it is not the Italian mafia; it is the largest crime organization in the state of Missouri.
Running their operation out of Funland - a stationary carnival outside Branson - these violent criminals are carnies by day, killers by night.
They are led by a hardened old criminal known as Reverend Sammy, who doubles as a minister, and there seems to be no stopping them. But when things go awry and bodies start piling up, who will be the last man standing?
"Rausch's writing is like a serpent. It's lean. It's clever. It coils around you...and then it strikes. It's glorious, but be warned - there is no anti-venom." (Chris Miller, author of Dust)
"Reading Andy Rausch is like waking up with a stranger in your bed - it'll shock the hell out of you, but it's always one hell of a story." (Clark Roberts, author of Led by Beasts)

A tough, gritty crime story
This is a hard-as-nails crime story told from the point of view of a small-time hood from the American Midwest. Author Andy Rausch has a flair for making these people seem authentic but strangely sympathetic. The narrator for the audiobook has just the right amount of noir grittiness to make the story ring true. Hard-hitting and intense, this makes for great listening.
