Ed Earl Burch
Created by Jim Nesbitt
Dallas private eye ED EARL BURCH has a bad disposition, a string of bad marriages, a pair of bad knees and a liver that just ain't worth shit, but he's also one tough, smart SOB. He doesn't take any crap from anybody but boy, can he dish it out.
A former vice and homicide dick, he's been battered and burned -- a former hotshot content now to take life as it comes, one day at a time, even if it isn't going anywhere. Long as there's a boutbon at the end of the day.
Definitely recommended for fans of Joe Lansdale and James Crumley, Nesbitt presents a hard world of hurt and regret, full of spit and shit, sweat and blood and jizz, and a private eye trying to live in it -- one who knows he's already doomed.
The author spent over thirty years as a journalist, chasing down neo-Nazis, rodeo cowboys, presidential candidates and other scoundrels, and lived to tell the tale. It shows.
