9781605434391: Sand's Game


His name is Sand . . .

... a former crime lord with a price on his head, an army of hit men on his back, and a .45 riding in a shoulder rig under his arm to do his talking. A man alone, with few friends and many hates.

Walk along with him in this volume, down the dark street and fog-filled alleyways of Skid Row as he seeks the monstrosity that killed a ragged little man with sticky fingers and a generous heart who did not deserve to die in this dead place.

Enter a bordello where the madam has just died from a hundred shallow stab wounds. Find out why she used her last breath, not to tell the police the name of the killer, but to breathe out the word "Sand." What had this woman done for him that she knew she could talk to him from the grave?

Fly in with him to the city he left behind when he quit the mob, the city where his enemies rule and where he could never return. But the word is out. It is seeping through the underworld like smoke through a crack.

"Sand is coming back!"

There is nowhere to hide . . . and it's too late to pray.

This is a brand new book with two novels by Ennis Willie, and they're accompanied by some more stories by Ennis, along with some excellent essays about his writing. Check out the Table of Contents!
