About this title

Synopsis:

Finishing a fourteen-year prison term, Bill Malone takes a job at the Star Motel and tries to start over, but his new life is shattered when one of his new friends is raped, forcing Malone into a confrontation with the local mafia. A first novel.

Review:

Martin began writing while in prison for a variety of offenses; under the pen name "Red Hog" he published a series of disturbing, fascinating articles. Now he has brought those same qualities to his first novel, the story of a man just released after a 14-year-stretch for armed robbery. All Bill Malone wants to do is work at the only job which ever brought him any satisfaction -- running an industrial strength dishwashing machine in a Fresno restaurant. But his record and his natural bent toward violence make even that limited ambition impossible. Fans of the hardboiled novels of Jim Thompson (After Dark, My Sweet, The Grifters, The Killer Inside Me) will especially enjoy this debut.
