One of Stephen King s "must-reads for summer" (Entertainment Weekly)

A New York Times Notable Crime Book

An aging but formidable strip club owner, Claudiu "Manco" Kapak, is robbed as he places his cash receipts in a bank s night-deposit box. Enraged, he sends his henchmen out to find a suspect who is spending lots of cash and is too new to Los Angeles to realize he s stolen from a gangster. Their search leads to Joe Carver, an innocent who evades capture and sets out to make Kapak wish he d chosen someone else. Meanwhile, the real culprit, Jefferson Davis Falkins, and his girlfriend Carrie seem to believe they ve found a whole new profession: robbing Manco Kapak.

Lieutenant Nick Slosser, the detective in charge of the puzzling and increasingly violent case, has his own troubles, including worries about how he s going to afford to send the oldest child of each of his two bigamous marriages to college without making their mothers suspicious. As this odd series of difficulties explodes into a triple killing, Carver finds himself in the middle of a gang war over Kapak s empire, while Falkins and Carrie journey into territory more strange and violent than either had imagined.
