Publisher's Summary

Comprising two distinct short novels - Monroe's Nightmare in Paradise and Bad Luck Shadow from critically acclaimed Victor McGlothin - Borrow Trouble is a hot double-feature that perfectly showcases each author's unique style.

What the critics say

"Monroe's Nightmare in Paradise features 31-year-old Renee, a second grade teacher and self-proclaimed 'Miss Goody Two-Shoes' who, with wild best friend Inez, goes to the Caribbean to 'get loose'. Frustration with her own meek nature and an admission by Inez - she slept with Renee's husband before they married - propel Renee into a one-night stand that results in her arrest for prostitution. When husband Leon won't pony up the fine, Renee is jailed for three months - plenty of time to decide who stays in her life.... Bad Luck Shadow [is] set in 1946. [T]he story's hero is Baltimore Floyd, a dashing scoundrel with charisma to burn. Fleeing Harlem and a gambling debt, Baltimore steals into a neon-lit Kansas City, where he holes up in old love Franchetta's cathouse and plans the takedown of a high-stakes card game. McGlothin's tale is sophisticated and sexy, with the plotting and pacing of first-rate noir." ( Publishers Weekly)
