The Last Honest Horse Thief by Michael Koryta

The Last Honest Horse Thief

by Michael Koryta

First edition. Limited to 100 copies issued in cloth, numbered and signed by the author. As new, unread copy in dust jacket. The novella tells a story from the childhood of Koryta's series character, Markus Novak, raised by a family of cons. When his mother is arrested during a job, Markus gets separated from her and his uncles and put into foster care. He spends his days working the farm and his nights restoring a rusty old 1950s Chevrolet. Then a note left by his uncles and found in an old dusty paperback at a local pawnshop gives him a clue as to their whereabouts, and he sets his sights on leaving to be with them again. Restoring the car soon becomes his only hope of reaching his family, and a dusty old manual his only hope of making it run once again.
