Matt's producing articles for the mystery/thriller imprint of a major New
York publisher: Little, Brown & Company. The idea for these articles

"A WICKED, MARVELOUS BOOK." - David Corbett, award-winning, bestselling author of THE DEVIL'S REDHEAD,
DONE FOR A DIME, and DO THEY KNOW I'M RUNNING? (See full review below.)
Comments from DAVID CORBETT -
"Witty and gritty and paced like a rocket, Matt Bayan's THE FIRECRACKER
KING is an utter gas to read. A kicker of a plot, wily characters deftly

Matt Bayan understands a sneaky, subtle truth: that the harshest realities always come salted with an earthy wit. My God, what a funny, jarring, gripping book.

What a treat for any serious reader."

THE CHINESE JARS and THE UGLY DWARF -
"THE FIRECRACKER KING is the best coming-of-age book I have ever read,
including A CATCHER IN THE RYE."
Comments from A. C. CRISPIN, bestselling author of
The STARBRIDGE series, STAR WARS: THE HAN SOLO TRILOGY, SAREK, and many
other novels including the recently released Pirates of the Caribbean novel,
THE PRICE OF FREEDOM.
"Bayan's description of the firecracker slugfest out on the lake had

is Stephen King's THE BODY - the story that inspired the film STAND BY
