Scott Weiss is a private detective. John Foy is a professional killer. The woman is Julie Wyant, a hooker with the face of an angel. Julie spent one night with Foy - a night of psychopathic cruelty that Foy called love. Desperate to get away from him, she vanished without a trace. And Foy wants her back. There’s only one man who can find her: Weiss, the best locate operative in the business. She’s begged him not to look for her, fearing he’ll bring the killer in his wake. But Weiss can’t stay away. Now, from a town called Paradise, through a wilderness that feels like hell, Weiss searches for Julie - and the killer follows, waiting for his chance. They are two expert hunters matching move for move - until it ends in gunfire on Damnation Street.

"A hardboiled noir mystery that will please old-style mystery lovers and modern crime novel fans alike." New York Daily News
"Klavan s confidently wry style keeps things punched up throughout . . . If having this much fun with a tale of assassination and romantic melancholy is wrong, who wants to be right?" Atlantic Monthly

"Damnation Street reminds me again why Klavan is one of my drop-everything-and-read authors. Like Weiss s trademark scotch, it goes down smooth and hits hard." Gregg Hurwitz, author of Troubleshooter and Last Shot
