My latest book selection is a southern noir that I couldn’t put down. Beauregard “Bug” Montage is a hardworking man who owns a car garage, a dedicated husband and father to his wife and three children. However, he has a past: He is the best getaway driver in the south.

Things are starting to fall apart for “Bug” business is slowing down, and his terminally ill mother needs full-time care that he can’t afford. When an old acquaintance comes around in need of a getaway driver for a diamond heist, Beauregard feels he has no choice to get behind the wheel one more time.

S.A. Cosby’s “Blacktop Wasteland” is a gripping portrayal of a man pushed to his limit by poverty, race, and past life.
