Property Values (eBook)
Sobre o livro
The worlds of urban gentrification, overpriced real estate, and gang violence collide in this wry and sardonic crime novel by author and comedian Charles Demers.
As a shaky truce between suburban gangsters starts to unravel, schlubby civilian Scott Clark has other things on his mind: if he cant afford to buy out his ex father-in-law, Scotts about to lose the only house hes ever called home. In the red-hot urban housing market, he doesnt have a chance -- until he and his best friends take the desperate measure of staging a fake drive-by shooting on the property to push down the asking price. But when Scotts mobster-posturing stunt attracts the attention of the real criminals, his pretend gang soon finds itself in the middle of a deadly rivalry.
With wicked humor and a brilliant cast of desperate characters,Property Values explodes the crime novel trope while exploring the comic lengths a man will go to in order to become a home owner in todays market.
