Journalist and Edgar Award-winning author Jess Walter's Citizen Vince is a witty social satire about a man conflicted by love, politics, and his past set against the backdrop of the 1980 presidential election. Living in Spokane, Washington under the Witness Protection Program, small-time hood Vince Camden leads a quiet existence among his new friends: local criminals, prostitutes and other social outcasts. By day he makes donuts and reads the beginnings of books to impress the cute blonde who comes into his shop every morning. In his spare time though, he runs a lucrative credit card scam. But everything spirals out of control when a mobster from back East shows up and wants a piece of the pie. Further complicating things is Vince's newfound political consciousness, as he becomes deeply troubled by a choice between two less-than-appealing candidates. Snappy dialogue and astute political commentary make Citizen Vince a must listen. "[An] immensely entertaining crime thriller and wry social commentary."-Chicago Tribune
