I jutted out a hand to this fellow bouncer. Name’s Moses McGuire. They call me Mac. He smiled, showing me several gold teeth.

Five bucks, a skinny Vietnamese valet said, ready for me to argue with him. Twenty. I jutted out a hand to this fellow bouncer. As in ‘truck’? To the guys ‘round here. And ‘Daddy’ to the ladies? Pow, give the man a toy doll.

11 BEST OF 2011 LISTS"More from the king of bad-ass." Thomas Pluck (Author)"No one does gritty, violent noir like Stalling. His prose is razor sharp; his storytelling is masterful. The man can write, and Out There Bad, the second in Stalling's Moses McGuire series, is a testament to just how good Stalling can be." - Anderson O'Donnell (Author)"Mo McGuire. That's all you need. Because, if you were in for the last ride, you know what's coming. Full tilt boogie that slams your head back and squishes your brain against the back of your skull and puts you in that place with your spine against the bricks of a dead end alley and a set of headlights coming at you at one hundred and forty MPH and there ain't no way you can see you're ever gonna get out of this alive, but you just plain don't care if you do or not, because this is here and this is now and f**k all the rest... More? Sure. Redemption of the bleakest kind. Broken loyalty. Dirty deeds done at a price you don't want to pay. Love -- of the hardest kind. The hardest kind. Yeah, everything here is the hardest kind.  - AJ Hays (Author)Out There Bad is the follow up novel to the critically claimed Beautiful, Naked & Dead.

The story is about human trafficking. Moses McGuire is a rough, violent, drug & alcohol addict that provides security for a strip club (off & on when he's not off killing people). Despite his wayward ways, he somehow manages to be likable because he has a certain morality that is raw and basic. He spends his life trying to help the less fortunate and in the process does a lot of killing and maiming of the bad guys. He also likes to drive cars fast and is always crashing them. The disturbing part is that human trafficking is real and it's hard to watch! The story never lags and keeps you hooked to the end.

"Out There Bad" is Stallings' follow-up to his brilliant first novel, "Beautiful, Naked, And Dead." In this second novel, the wild adventures of strip club bouncer Moses McGuire, also known as the rescuer of damsels in distress, continue. McGuire is not your normal hero. He is a down-on-his-luck guy with no family and few friends and a sour outlook on life, but he has a soft spot in his heart for girls in trouble and, when he sees a Russian stripper ushered into a dark car, he smells trouble and, with his giant Armenian thug friend, Gregor, attempts a valiant rescue of the lady, although now his mission increases in scope as he must find her younger sister, tricked into the sex trade outside of Moscow and shipped across half a world to Mexico. The Russian hoodlums never counted on the redheaded Viking warrior McGuire who will come crashing into their Baja palaces and turn their world upside down. McGuire luckily finds an unusual ally in Ensenada, one who is just as vicious, just as vicious, and leaves tarot cards on kills.

It's no picnic in McGuire's world. Rather, it is a dark, violent underbelly of a world he wades through. Life is a battle and you better be able to carry your own water. We are children of the battlefield, he muses. He thinks the Beatles were all wimps with their simpering love songs and simple solutions to complex questions.

Much of the action takes place in the environs of Los Angeles: "City of wild, damaged dreams and beautiful graffiti-splashed cement rivers." He explains: "This city is morally mortgaged to the hilt and drowning in the vig."

This book may be even more violent than the first McGuire book. He goes into "full tilt berserker mode. No mercy asked, none given." The book is nonstop action from start to finish. "Let someone take you down without retribution," McGuire explains, "you've started down that soapy path that ends with you being their shower toy." Make no mistake, this is powerful prose and a gut wrenching story.

So, if you are looking for a full-on action tale with tough, gritty verbage about a guy who tries to do the right thing, you've found your book.

i don't know how Josh Stallings started to write. I hate the standard bio as ex con, cabbie, and blue collar idot savant with a focus on armor and amour because it undercuts the time, thought, understanding, and growth that he has brought to Out There Bad as a writer.

What he has done here, in his second novel, is not easy.

We meet Moses Maguire in Beautiful, Naked, and Dead. He is the less civilized Spenser, Matt Scudder before the twelve steps, Dave Robicheaux without the gumbo, and, more critically, Milo Milodragovitch without the insight. As I said in my review of that book, it was a common story uncommonly told.

Out There Bad has the generous, and general, mix of swamp familiar to all recent endeavors in crime fiction. Strippers, Russians, California, and a few too many bumps of fat cocaine populate these pages in a fairly standard story of betrayal, revenge, and redemption.

What is not common is what Stallings does with Moses. Moses lives on these pages and his reflexes are infused with the lessons he has learned in the first novel. And there is more here. Stallings works with multiple points of view some of which succeed and some of which do not, but, all of which give this novel a feel that did not exist in the first.

The most creative and daring thing Stallings does is slice off a piece of Moses' psychosis and feed it back to him in Mikalya, He will love her and you will read it to see why and close the book with an interest in how this will further change him in the next novel.

Two final things that must be noted. Stallings must have gotten a filter or an editor because the phrase "baby doll" is virtually whited out of this book. The cover on this book is, as was the cover on Beautiful, Naked, and Dead, worth the price of admission.

It all started with a dame, but then again isn't that how it always starts? No sooner had the wounds inflicted by former lover Cass healed, another stripper comes along to tear them open and set Moses McGuire's world ablaze. What started in 'Beautiful Naked and Dead' continues in 'Out There Bad' - a knight in rusty blood soaked armour first finding the damsel then the distress. Accompanied by Armenian side-kick Gregor, Moses finds himself up against the Russian mob, a cross continent snuggling and prostitution ring and a Mexican assassin hell bent on vengeance as he attempts to find a 13yr old girl held captive as a sex slave. Naturally, Moses embraces his stripper superhero persona and kicks ass from L.A to Mexico and back again enduring a world of hurt along the way - much like BN&D the story unfolds at breakneck speed in true noir/hardboiled tradition and was a pure joy to read from start to finish. 'Out There Bad' closes a chapter on Moses McGuire to date and opens a whole new can of whoop-ass - you'd be hard pressed to read anything as good as what Stallings is putting out there - 5 stars.
