Autobiography for Quais du Polar

« Todd Robinson is a walking cautionary tale who’s managed to somehow not get killed and wrote a couple of books in a style he likes to refer to as “Idiot Noir.” He’s been a bouncer and a bartender for over twenty years, and has almost been killed (on separate occasions) by the Hong Kong Triads, two rhesus monkeys, and his ex-wife. »
