For the 50th anniversary of its original publication, the cult classic Daddy Cool, is now back in print with a dynamic new look.

 A cold, calculating hired killer takes family matters into his own hands in this bold action-packed street thriller from Donald Goines, the OG master of urban lit...

Nobody's better at taking out bodies than Larry Jackson, aka "Daddy Cool." Long as he's paid in full, he'll pull the trigger or stick a knife deep, whatever it takes to get the job done.

No questions asked. Nobody's better. Nothing knocks him off his game--except his own family. Dead ass. He's got two stepsons wasting space and a wife he almost forgot about.

But his daughter is another story. The only reason he do what he do is to keep her off the streets. Imagine how he feels about her new boyfriend being a two-bit pimp? It's time to TCB before everything he's worked for ends up in the gutter. No cap.


Donald Goines was born in Detroit, Michigan. He joined the U.S. Air Force instead of going into his family's drycleaning business. Following his service, he entered into a life of drug addiction and crime. He received seven prison sentences, serving a total of over six years. While he was in prison, Goines wrote his first two novels, Dopefiend: The Story of a Black Junkie and Whoreson: The Story of a Ghetto Pimp. Goines was shot to death in 1974.
