Publisher's Summary

Shirley Lyle hooks for a living. She’s a big girl who keeps her profile low. But when a drug lord and his son toss her trailer, she adds a couple letters to her name.

Now, she’s killed the drug lord’s son and two meth zombies. Fed up, ready to set fire to her past, her job - and her trailer - she’s dragged back into the role she’s forsworn by a man who presses her buttons with a hammer.

Shirley realizes she’ll never be more than a 400-pound hooker. But when her partner-in-revolution, Ulyana the Ukrainian stripper, disappears, her car empty and bullet holes in the glass, Shirley reaches deep, finds her sass, and puts flame to fuse.

Who took Ulyana?

The Russian mob?

The man who beat Shirley down?

The 83-year-old drug lord who refuses to die?

When all your life you’ve been one thing, but your survival - and your friend’s - demand you be the hero...

You put on the F’N cape.

Prepare yourself for a battle of good and evil unlike any you've seen. With rave reviews from Publishers Weekly (starred review and best of the week), IndieNext List, Kirkus, BlueInk Review, Foreword Reviews, San Francisco Book Review, Seattle Book Review, Manhattan Book Review, Indie Reader, and more, if you haven't read Clayton Lindemuth's unique brand of literary noir, what are you waiting for?

Viva tha Revolution!

This was a great, entertaining book! I was so glad that Shirley was able to get her own story. The storyline picked up right where it left off from the last book. It was laugh out loud funny! I can't wait to hear more stories from Shirley and her side kick. Oh, and Mandy Fox was the perfect narrator for this one. She killed it!

My new heroine!!!

Finally a heroine after my own heart! Shirley is definitely not one of these scrawny, hyperintelligent, unrealistic superwomen. She is a 52 year old, 400 pound (hang on, actually she only weighs 353 pound) hooker who has been scarred by life. She has finally had enough of all the abuse and takes fate into her own hands. What ensues is a laugh-out-loud thrill ride including a few set-backs, despicable (and a few less despicable) men, guns the FBI and above all a lot of heart. Viva the Revolution!

In love with a super-sized hooker!

Not sure how but Shirley is kind, loving, caring and still a badass when she gets past herself. Viva The Revolution! Can’t wait for the next book!

A badass good hearted heroine!

I met Shirley in Baer Creighton's story, but I got to know her here! She's such a real mess of emotions and she's so relatable on multiple levels, plus her story is action packed! If you like hardscrabble lives and you know what it's like to live one in a southern state, you're going to be rooting for Shirley and her revolution, hell.......if you like gutsy but inherently flawed characters you're going to love her.
