Bagmen is the eight novel in the Victor Carl series by author William Lashner. Lawyer Victor Carl is down on his luck when he is recruited by an old college friend to make a pay off to someone blackmailing a congressman. But when the blackmailer later turns up dead Victor suddenly finds himself arrested for her murder and his only hope of survival rests on a group of bagmen, people who work in the shadows of the political world and help make problems disappear.
The writing in this novel had just the right mix of humour and sarcasm and brought out some classic one-liners and dialogue reminiscent of the great Raymond Chandler. Read the full review here
