Read A Filthy Business Online Free - Good intentions: they’ll bite you every time.
A lifetime ago, brutally efficient fixer Phil Kubiak coldly cleaned up the messes of shady clients from Miami to Las Vegas by any means necessary—short of murder.
Now he’s one eye and one working leg short of the man he used to be, scarred beyond recognition, and with the feds and criminal organizations in hot pursuit. Throwing back sour beer in a dingy bar, Phil recounts the long story of his bitter life to the only person left to listen . . .
Across the splintery table, a journalist in pursuit of a career-making interview has driven into the bowels of the desert, seeking not only an award-winning profile but also something more . . . something darker.
Will what she sees in Phil’s empty gaze spur her toward forgiveness—or vengeance?

Phil Kubiak is an outlaw concierge/fixer who struggles to understand the morality of his life's direction in William Lashner's brilliant new thriller. It's so satisfyingly entertaining that it reminded me of why I read fiction in the first place and seriously tempted me to start over on page one...

Lashner is becoming one of my favorite writers. Great characters, tight plots and a few twists you don't see coming. Highly recommended.

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway.
There are plenty of reviews giving a synopsis of the book, so I won't. The story was great as was the writing. I have to say that the in motion animation was a little disconcerting at first, but I got used to it and even found that it added to the enjoyment...

Wow, I don't even know where to start. First off, this is not for the faint of heart; I read a lot of crime/noir/hardboiled books and this book made me gag in a few places. Second off this is an unforgettable book. The main character is a psychopath and recognizes that he is one. He has no empath...

This is the first of Lashner's works I've read outside the Victor Carl Series, and it's stunning. In several senses of the word.
A woman writer (unnamed) is directed to a vile bar in the middle of a Southwestern dessert to interview the outlaw (who may be named Phil Kubiak, but I'd bet he borrowed...

W „Brudnym interesie” opowieść o szemranym przedsięwzięciu, polegającym na zaspokajaniu życzeń klientów, przeplatana jest roztrząsaniem własnej osobowości przez uczestnika tej inicjatywy. Owo zaspokajanie wymaga przeprowadzania operacji nie tylko podejrzanych moralnie, ale na ogół niezgodnych z p...

Is a psychopathic outlaw who can win your sympathy the ultimate in noir heroes? Probably because this was the ultimate noir. Now noir isn't my favorite, but I have to respect this rich and exciting effort by Lashner, and I even have to love it a little. Phil Kubiak, the narrator and protagonist,...

Phil Kubiak is broken, a self described psychopath and abomination, but that doesn't mean he's not ambitious. Regrettably he also has a self destructive streak, and trying to be a decent human being often conflicts with his desire to attain wealth, which can be a problem when you're working for a...

My 3 year old accidentally bought this book while playing with my Kindle. It wasn't my usual read, but I kept it and gave it a shot. Destiny, or something, right?
I was enthralled right from the beginning. The characters are interesting and exciting, and the plot is engrossing. I spent every mome...

I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway. The kindle in motion really added to the story. This was one of the best thrillers I have read in a long time. It was as if Red from the Blacklist and Ray Donovan were the same person. This book was no where near what I expected. It had twists an...
