Sam Hill steals cars. Not just any cars, but collectible cars, rare works of automotive artistry. Sam's a specialist, and he's made a good life for himself in Albuquerque, NM.

Things change after he steals a primo 1965 Thunderbird from a lawyer's house. In the trunk, Sam finds a corpse, a police informant with a bullet hole between his eyes.

Somebody set Sam up. Played a trick on him. And Sam, a prankster himself, can't let it go. He must find who framed him, and get his revenge with an even bigger practical joke, one that soon has gangsters gunning for him and police on his tail.

In BOOST, Steve Brewer stirs up his usual potent mixture of high crime and low comedy in a rollicking novel where car thieves are the good guys and the action never stops.

"Brewer earns four stars for a clever plot, totally engaging characters and a pay-back ending." --Mystery Scene

"Veteran pro Brewer keeps the wheels turning throughout this serio-comic thriller, in spirit somewhere between a Westlake and a Westlake-as-Richard-Stark." --Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine

"Fast-paced, well-written and highly enjoyable." --Mystery News

"Incredibly entertaining." --Baltimore Sun
