About this Item

" In this superbly authentic, highly original novel of crime and retribution, an angry cop waits and wonders. knowing only that he will surprise himself when he runs out of patience for a killer with a maddening knack for playing an ice-cold Clyde to a most unsentimental Bonnie".Elmore Leonard (1925-2013) is a very good writer; he has a wonderful ear, and his duologue never has a false note. An entertainer who can write circles around almost any active crime novel writers today. Cover is wrapped in primal blue paper over board and is quarter bound in gray cloth with blue the title in blue on the spine. The jacket is unclipped $(10.95) and would be as new if not for a 1/2" closed tear at top of front and a 1/4" closed tear on verso. A wonderful collectible from an iconic author who died in 2013.

About this title


An angry cop, who has been continually frustrated by the courts in his attempts to bring justice to a savage killer, faces a climactic showdown when he decides to take matters into his own hands

From AudioFile:

Detroit homicide detective Raymond Cruz knows who shot the judge. And who killed eight more people. But knowing and proving are two different things. Steve Dunn does a first-class job presenting this complex story packed with a host of dark characters. He mixes carefully chosen dialects with just the right amount of emotion, pacing and inflection to bring this story to life. Although the opening chapters seem crowded with people and events, the plot moves smoothly to a clear conclusion. T.J.M. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
