Synopsis

Petty thief, amphetamine junkie...Billy Conover is a social parasite keeping just one step ahead of the law...until the night he accepts an invitation to go for a joy ride and ends up being party to the brutal killing of a black youth. BILLY BOY is his odyssey through an underworld of small-time thugs, ex-Girl Scouts who turn tricks for a vial of crack and an overburdened legal system that eventually holds Billy responsible for a murder to which he refuses to believe he was anything more than a witness...until something more important than his own neck intervenes.

“Hubschman has brought together all the ingredients for a riveting read: a sexy anti-hero, a persistent cop with a boyhood grudge, the gritty urban war zone of Brooklyn, NY, where the cultural melting pot is stuck on slow-boil, and a momentary lapse of his main character's judgment that sets the headlong machinery of the story in motion…. Billy Boy is as real as it gets, a tough, disturbing, unsentimental account of life on the mean streets of New York City.” –WordWeaver
