Blacky Jaguar, ex-IRA hard man, devoted greaser, and overall hooligan, is furious. Someone’s made off with Polly, his 1959 Plymouth Fury, and there’s not much that can stop him from getting her back. It doesn’t take him to long to get a name, Osito, the Little Bear. This career bastard has Polly in his clutches, and Blacky doesn’t have long until she’s a memory.
The sudden burst of righteous violence gets the attention of Special Agent Linda Chen, FBI pariah and Blacky’s former flame. Linda’s out to get her man before he burns down half the Bronx and her superiors get the collar.
All roads will lead our heroes to an unassuming house in one of the worst parts of the South Bronx, where fists and bullets will surely fly, but maybe, just maybe, Blacky will find a better reason to fight than a car. The Fury of Blacky Jaguar is the story of friends, enemies, and one sweet ass ride.
Praise for THE FURY OF BLACKY JAGUAR:
“Angel Luis Colón’s writing mixes brutal violence with dark humor, but he never forgets the emotional truth of his characters. Colon and The Fury of Blacky Jaguar should be on everyone’s radar now. Readers are going to love this exciting new voice.” —Dave White, Shamus Award-nominated author of Not Even Past.
“The Fury of Blacky Jaguar is a hardboiled Guy Ritchie-esque romp that clocks you in the jaw and leaves you eager for more the instant the credits roll. Angel Luis Colón is only beginning what is sure to be a career to watch.” —Christopher Irvin, author of Burn Card and Federales.
“I want a Black Jaguar TV series. And an action figure. And a lunchbox. And Blacky-branded brass knuckles. Until that day, I’ll settle for this razor-sharp, rattling buzzsaw of a novella.” —Rob Hart, author of New Yorked and City of Roses.
“Don’t let the Heavenly name fool you, Angel Luis Colón’s writing brings the heat. The Fury of Blacky Jaguar is a darkly wry, bare-knuckle brawl of a book that’ll leave you seeing stars. Five star reviews that is. I sure as Hell hope Angel has more in store for Blacky Jaguar, because this character has more fight in him than can be contained in a single novella.” —Bracken MacLeod, author of Stranded and Come to Dust.
An estranged family member! A score to end all scores! Continued gastrointestinal issues! Five years after surviving the most harrowing heist of her life, Fantine Park is lured back to the United States by her aunt. The bait: a lead on the identity of her mother’s killer and a score known as the ‘pension plan’, a piece of software that can literally pay out in perpetuity if they can get their hands on it in time.
Working with a team of actual professionals with their own motivations; Fan’s loyalties and beliefs will be tested as nothing is as it seems; especially when one of the members of this crew may have been the last person to see her mother alive.
It’s going to be lies, murder, and gas station hot dogs all the way down as Fan races to get the answers about the day her mother died and maybe, just maybe, the kind of cash that will pull her away from a continued life of crime.
Praise for PULL & PRAY:
“Tough, sly, and funny as hell; Fantine Park is a noir hero for a new century. With Pull & Pray, Angel Luis Colón continues to show why he’s one of the finest voices in crime fiction.” —Nick Kolakowski author of Slaughterhouse Blues and Somebody’s Trying to Kill Me
“Slick, smart and bristling with attitude, Pull & Pray is a fast-paced and fun romp of a heist novel. With the badass characters of Fan and Matty leading the way, Angel Luis Colón proves that he has his finger on the pulse of contemporary crime fiction.” —Steph Post author of Walk in the Fire
“Pull & Pray will have you laughing a one minute and shaking your head in disbelief the next. Can’t wait to see where Colón takes Fantine Park next!” —Hector Acosta author of Hardway
