I can't remember books

Hi I used to read a lot but they never really fully stuck with me but I vaguely remember bits of them and that's okay.

Concrete Underground

Concrete Underground - Moxie Mezcal ‘Concrete Underground’ knocked me out. It takes the noir plot and loops it into a feedback cycle until it breaks. It embraces the implausibility of the hero and squeezes horror out of it. Fast, sexy fun is laid on top of a growing layer of scar tissue on human faces until you can’t tell the difference anymore. It wears its influences on its sleeve and even walks you through them, but it makes something new out of them. A true 21st century novel.
