Book Details

The police force of Rocksburg, Pennsylvania, doesn’t see a ton of action. With jobs and industry moving away from the small city outside Pittsburgh, Detective Ruggiero “Rugs” Carlucci’s greatest adversaries are his negligent vacation-prone fellow officers and an older divorcee who has a habit of dancing naked on her back porch when she stops taking her medication. Retirement is on the horizon for Rugs, and the Vietnam vet is counting the days until he can move on from the job. But Rocksburg isn’t going to let Rugs drift off to retirement without a fight. Before he can neatly wrap up his career, Rugs will face a mad shooter, a vengeful city councilman, and, most perilously, his own mother. With a supporting cast of characters painted through uproarious profanity and heart-wrenching confessions, Another Day’s Pain is a bold and darkly funny novel about crime and the damaged souls it leaves behind.
