Editorial Reviews

Bad Citizen Corporation pumps fresh blood into the corpse of American mystery. Lauden debuts with the storytelling ease of a veteran author. It's fun, sun-scorched, and salty as the beaches it hails from."-Tom Pitts, author of Hustle and Knuckleball"Like a punk rock Lew Archer novel, Bad Citizen Corporation challenges you to keep up with the twists and turns. A murder mystery that goes from sun-kissed L.A. beaches to dirty rock clubs in a story filled with damaged souls and the lasting bonds of friendship."-Eric Beetner, author of Rumrunners and The Devil Doesn't Want Me'Beach noir with some serious punk rock bonafides. Bad Citizen Corporation is a rush of a debut novel that poses timely, thoughtful questions set to a breakneck tempo.'-Rob Hart, author of New Yorked"Carrying on in the tradition of musician turned mystery writers like Jo Nesbo and Bill Moody, S. W. Lauden's Bad Citizen Corporation pounds out an impressive rock-and-roll thriller. The story comes on strong and never lags behind its neck-breaking beat. Greg Salem, part-time punk rocker, now disgraced cop, plays like the bastard love child of Poly Styrene and James M. Cain. Add to the mix murder and mayhem-the girl who got away, seedy bars, real estate scams, vengeful heiresses, and an oddball assortment of thugs from the old neighborhood-drop it all under the warm Californian sun, and you've got the hit song-and must read-of the season."-Joe Clifford, author of Junkie Love and Lamentation "
