The Big Mouth: A Novel

By John King

Crime & mystery, Thriller, New adult fiction, General fiction | Paperback, eBook


Suspense fans should enjoy John King’s novel, The Big Mouth. It’s a crime thriller about a well-to-do New Jersey man who foolishly brags about his wealth and high cash position to win a political argument at a holiday party. Big mistake. He might win the argument, but he loses the war. Seems not everyone in the room is as well-to-do or honest. In fact, some are downright criminal. Rex Jones’s big mouth makes him the target for a group of lowlifes who plan to use his wife, Lena, and daughter, Laurie, as leverage to extort his cash. Can Rex save his family? Does he even have the ability to go up against these violent thugs? The Big Mouth is a novel about ordinary people in jeopardy of losing everything they cherish. It is a story where character is fate. Some will rise to the occasion while others fail. It is also about family. Their petty jealousies, arguments, and how in spite of their resentments they can come together when one of their own is in danger. It’s a fast and spare, cinematic read, reminiscent of the late Elmore Leonard, detailing the conception, plotting, and execution of a heinous crime where not everything goes as planned, and the outcome unpredictable. The Big Mouth is John King’s third book, following Blackjack 21 Stories and Hat Trick 3 Novellas.
