Mojave Crime Vol. 2
“Mesmerizing. Benjamin Goulet is the dark poet of the high desert.”
- Justin Go, author of The Steady Running of the Hour
A hapless actor finds himself on a hi-dez film set from hell. A young couple plots an insurance murder from a desert motel room. Seven terrible strangers come together in Joshua Tree for a reality show. A hitwoman ponders romantic poetry, while waiting for her target at a Yucca Valley bar. Old trailers burn to the dirt. Texts arrive from the afterlife. Gas stations become shooting galleries.
Mojave Crime Vol. 2 picks up where Vol. 1 left off, with 35 crime fiction vignettes and one full-length short story. The desert is hot. The lovers are cold. And the bad roads lead to nowhere good.
