About this title

Synopsis:

They are two sworn enemies with a single obsession: a woman on the run from them both.  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 on Damnation Street.

"Klavan s writing is masterful, and his characters superbly drawn . . . Damnation Street is sure to add to his growing reputation." Forbes

They are two sworn enemies with a single obsession: Julie Wyant, a woman on the run from them both. Scott Weiss is a private detective. John Foy is a professional killer.

They are two expert hunters matching move for move until it ends 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

ANDREW KLAVAN is the author of such bestselling novels as True Crime, adapted into a film by Clint Eastwood, and Don t Say a Word, adapted into a film starring Michael Douglas. His novels have been nominated for the Edgar Award four times and have won twice. He lives in Southern California.
