About this title


Fast One is possibly the toughest tough-guy and most brutal gangster story ever written. Set in Depression LA, it has a surreal quality that is positively hypnotic. It is the saga of gunman and gambler Gerry Kells and his dispo lover S. Granquist, who rearrange the LA underworld and 'disappear' in an explosive climax that matches their first appearance. The pace is incredible and relentless and the complex plot with its twists and turns defies summary. 'Some kind of high point in the ultra hard-boiled manner' - Raymond Chandler

About the Author:
