Critically acclaimed author David Schickler made a splash with Kissing in Manhattan, a best-selling story collection that Booklist said is magical and never ceases to amaze and impress. Now this gifted writer's extraordinary imagination produces a brazen novel that reads like Bonnie and Clyde meets Robin Hood.

Grace McGlone works at a car wash in Wisconsin. She tells herself that when the right man pulls into town, she plans to leave with him, and Henry Dante is the right man. Their passionate bond is immediate, yet they are in grave danger. Henry has stolen a magnificent set of diamonds and is on the run from his gangster boss. But Grace is trying for heaven, so the priceless ice has to go. Making their way across America, Henry and Grace give the diamonds away, give their bodies to one another, and give themselves little chance to survive the retribution headed their way.

Sexy and full of surprises, Sweet and Vicious is a spectacular tale of modern love that no listener will soon forget.

    " A tasty slice of midwestern lovers-on-the-run romance. Reminds me of Denis Johnson's "Angels" (though I read THAT so long ago I could be way off base with that impression) and Bonnie and Clyde. "

    " This book was, simply put, hot. The plot fell to some cliches, but it was delicously graphic and I couldn't put it down. "
