FROM THE PUBLISHER - First he wrote STOP THIS MAN!, the journey into nightmare that Erskine Caldwell ‘could not put down.’ Then he wrote BENNY MUSCLES IN, the biography of a hoodlum etched in acid. Now here is A SHROUD FOR LESSO, the third brilliant shocker from Peter Rabe. To encounter Rabe is to encounter violence – in the most savagely compelling way you may ever be able to remember. It is the story of Jack Jesso, an American gangster, exiled to Europe – fighting for his life, for half a million dollars, and for a beautiful woman, against one of the world’s most dangerous men. A SHROUD FOR JESSO is the portrait of a tough guy, written with sledge-hammer strength – an achievement in suspense that ranks with the masters.
