Urban Waite - The Carrion Birds

Colfax Avenue: Urban Waite, author of the highly acclaimed The Terror of Living, will read from and sign his new novel The Carrion Birds (William Morrow), a remarkable work of literary noir. Hired gun Ray Lamar is ready to put his past behind him. He wants to see his twelve-year-old son and start a new life—away from the violence of the last ten years. One last heist will take him there. But when things start to go very wrong, Ray realizes the path to redemption isn’t always easy. A soulful tale of violence, vengeance, and contrition, The Carrion Birds is an elegant depiction of one man’s last chance to make things right.
