THE FURY OF BLACKY JAGUAR by Angel Luis Colon (Shotgun Honey)
THE FURY OF BLACKY JAGUAR is a short novella about a badass crazy criminal who, while on the run, has his pride and joy, a ’59 Plymouth Fury, stolen by some local NY hoodlums. If you steal from Blacky Jaguar he will fuck you up! And that’s just what happens as Blacky leaves a trail of broken bodies from Staten Island to the South Bronx. Blacky is a cliche pint-swilling Irishman, (ex-IRA and all round nutcase!), who doesn’t shy from a scrap. Things take a turn for the worse when Blacky gets knocked unconscious and kidnapped by the local crime lord who has “Polly”, the Plymouth Fury. On the trail of Blacky is his old flame, Chen, who just happens to be FBI. THE FURY OF BLACKY JAGUAR is hardboiled violence mix with black humour. There’s bullets, fist fights and a bit of love. It’s an addictive read that I flicked through in no time. Hats off to Angel Luis Colon, great stuff. (Jack Bantry).
