Told in the raw and unforgettable voice of career criminal Billy the Kid, Born Speaking Lies is the story of a man who gets that rare second chance in life as he tries to escape the violent world of 1990s Brooklyn and a history of bad choices.
After being shot and left for dead in a Pennsylvania forest by members of his own crew, Billy tries to disappear into small town life with Lora, a local woman who finds him bleeding by the side of the road and offers him her heart and her home. But Billy’s desire for revenge and his rapidly deteriorating health drives him toward a bloody confrontation with his former friends. Infused with black humor and hard-hitting action, a well-written, “literary” crime novel with unforgettable, colorful characters.
