Blacktop Wasteland by SA Cosby front cover

American author SA Cosby has delivered this year’s breakout novel. Blacktop Wasteland, set in Virginia, is the story of the downfall of Bug Montage, family man and small-business owner, who has never been able to quite kick the thrills of drag racing and armed robbery.

Part perceptive character study, rural noir and adrenaline-charged hardboiled thriller, Blacktop Wasteland takes inspiration from the classic American crime fiction written by the likes of Richard Stark and George V Higgins, and blends it with an appealing mix of 21st century social concerns to create a fresh and exciting novel that has broad appeal.
