From domestic war to barroom brawls, grad-student-turned-PI Neal Carey's got more than studying on his plate.

Neal Carey's three-year confinement in a Chinese monastery is finally over -- but his troubles are just beginning. The elusive financial benefactors who have bought his freedom expect a return on their investment. They want him to find Cody McCall, a two-year-old boy recently abducted by his father in a bitter Hollywood custody battle -- a task that will propel Neal from the glittering Hollywood hills to the remote wilds of Nevada.

To find Cody, Neal has to turn outlaw in a land of two-bit casinos and roadside cathouses to infiltrate a vicious white supremacist group spouting hatred and dealing in terror. But the deeper undercover he goes, the deadlier the game becomes. Now Neal must force a showdown with the group's crazed leader and find Cody before the missing toddler ends up lost in a world of unspeakable evil.

About the Author:

DON WINSLOW is the author of thirteen books and has also written for film and television. On his way to becoming a writer, he did a number of things to make a living -- private investigator, safari guide, actor, and theater director, among others. His first novel, A Cool Breeze on the Underground (Book 1 in the Neal Carey Mysteries), was nominated for an Edgar, and California Fire and Life received the Shamus Award. He now lives in Southern California.

From Publishers Weekly:

Edgar-nominee Winslow springs his wry New York protagonist, Neal Carey, from a forced stint in a Chinese monastery (don't ask, just read Trail to Buddha's Mirror ) and into a '90s Wild West odyssey with more surprises than a hatful of rattlesnakes. The unnamed bank for which Neal and his stepfather work (in "a shadow department that handled difficult problems for its larger investors") taps Neal to retrieve two-year-old Cody McCall, snatched by his divorced dad and taken to the wild backcountry of Nevada: the High Lonely. Neal's boss also wants to get the goods on the True Christian Identity Church, a vicious white supremacist organization to which Cody's father belongs. Signing on as a cowhand at racist Bob Hansen's ranch, Neal infiltrates the group by presenting himself as a "fund-raiser' for Hansen's thugs. Seduced by Nevada ranch life and a local schoolmarm, he ignores orders to come home. His superiors at the bank concoct grand scams that go zanily awry, lead to the chase and wind up with a gunfight at an old corral. The womenfolk hold their own, the setting is True West and the wit is drier than sagebrush. Winslow deftly balances hard-edged action with characters to really care about, all described in swift, sharp prose.
