The Fugitive Pigeon
When two hitmen come calling on Canarsie bartender Charlie Poole, he is forced to stand up for himself, and leave Brooklyn, for the first time in his life.
Praise for The Fugitive Pigeon
“I was born a bum and I’ve been a bum twenty-four years, and if it wasn’t for my Uncle Al and this job running this bar I would have starved to death in a minute,”” says narrator Charlie Poole at the start of a high comedy of errors cum murder. Charlie finds himself tagged as next victim and startles the carnivores by running straight into their syndicated dens. This involves rushing around N. Y. with a girl who pretends to be blind drunk because what could be more natural at 1 A.M. in the Village? Real fun on the run.” – Kirkus
