Some say he's a serial killer. Others, a vigilante doing what police can't or won't do. What's certain is that Dean Drayhart, a paraplegic, will soon sit on death row for killing hit-and-run drivers in Los Angeles. But not if the Mexican Mafia gets hold of him first. Somewhere, Dean's trained companion monkey Sid and girlfriend Cinda are outrunning the law in a fast '98 Trans Am. The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department wants Sid, dead or alive. Dean may be broken in body but his fierce spirit is determined to protect Sid and Cinda in the most creative ways imaginable. Hardboiled, funny, relentless, and unexpectedly tender-hearted, Bite Harder delivers riotous action all the way to a bombshell climax that could only have been written by Anonymous-9, the self-declared mad scientist of crime fiction.
Praise for Bite Harder
"Brilliantly, brutally funny, so real you can taste it. Starring Sid, the cutest serial-killing helper monkey in all fiction." Douglas Lindsay, author of the Barney Thomson novels
"Bite Harder is part screwball comedy, part killer crime story entirely unlike anything else out there. It is unique and vicious and bloody funny but what kept me turning pages deep into the night was its heart. I loved Hard Bite, and Bite Harder is even better, stronger, wilder." Josh Stallings, Beautiful, Naked & Dead
"Few books have a killer monkey, and fewer still have a writer as funny, incisive, and down-and-dirty brilliant as Anonymous-9." Benjamin Whitmer, Cry Father
"If Tim Dorsey got shot out of a cannon and landed in Los Angeles he might write something like Bite Harder with a paraplegic and a monkey doppleganging for Dorsey's sunny psychotic Serge Storms and sidekick Coleman." Les Edgerton, The Genuine, Imitation, Plastic Kidnapping
"Anonymous-9 is a writer you can trust to be batshit crazy. I loved this book even more than the first one. Another wicked, twisted plot that is laugh-out-loud funny and so well-written that you almost believe the impossible." Terry Shames, The Killing at Cotton Hill
"Deranged Dean Drayhart and Sid the killer service monkey dispense cold justice together like Master Blaster let loose on the streets of Los Angeles... for me it was love at first bite!" Thomas Pluck, Blade of Dishonor
"Anonymous-9 has something new to say, and says it in a voice both powerful and passionate" Robert J Randisi, Arch Angels
Also by Anonymous-9, Hard Bite, described by three-time Edgar winner T. Jefferson Parker as "a crazed noir excursion into an unprecedented heart of darkness. From the opening line on, it challenges and confronts, attacks and confounds. Violent and sometimes funny, always entertaining."
