Bestselling author Tony Bourdain is back with a new novel, his first fiction since the groundbreaking success of Kitchen Confidential.

Bobby Gold is a loveable criminal. After doing ten years in the clinker, he's out and ready for work. With not even an attempt to play it straight, he's back to breaking bones for tough guys. His turf: the club scene and restaurant racket. It's not that he enjoys the job-Bobby has real heart-but he's good at it and a guy has to make a living. Things change when he meets Nikki, the cook at a club most definitely not in his territory. Smitten, he can't stay away. Bobby Gold had known trouble before, but with Nikki the saut#65533; bitch in his life, things take a turn for life or death.

Inspired by Fitzgerald's Pat Hobby stories, The Bobby Gold Stories is a gem of a novel featuring the best of Bourdain's work. Fans will recognize the gangster riffs of Bone in the Throat, the antics of the sexy criminal couple of Gone Bamboo, and the brilliant restaurant scenes from Kitchen Confidential . Distilled into a fast and furious, pitch-perfect story of food, sex, crimes and mayhem, The Bobby Gold Stories is sure to become a modern classic.
