FEATURE AND INTERVIEW
In THE BIG THRILL (The Magazine of the International Thriller Writers)
Banana Republic + Race! by Glenn A. Bruce
“Power-packed! Glenn A. Bruce is the only writer I know that can make dirt track racing into a page-turner heist story reminiscent of The Sting!” ~ Ty Spencer Vossler, Author of “Deep Mud”
Johnny, a mysterious biracial man, and his Asian-American female friend visit a Virginia dirt track—as out of place as their fancy BMW out in the parking lot—but they aren’t there for the “redneck racing.” They’ve come to scout young driver Tony Trivette.
Johnny then spins a twisted tale of war, smuggling, and treachery around conman Danny duBois, who vanished decades ago with everyone’s drug money. Johnny has a plan to recover it, but... add a racist Southern sheriff, a Black accomplice framed for murder, a Vietnamese bride left for dead, and the Drill Sergeant from Hell, and someone will likely die—if Johnny’s crazy plan works at all.
By the end, no one trusts anyone—with good reason—and the entire mission may not even be as promised. What is the mystery waiting across the finish line? And what moral lines will they all have to cross just to play this game? Who will live? Who will die? Is anyone even who they say they are? This is the nature of a complex heist, executed under a veil of revenge, greed, and murder.
“Put on your seatbelt. This is a wild-ass ride!” ~ Jim Hamilton, Author of “The Last Entry”
