The first full length outing for tough Brooklyn PI Vic Powers from New York’s new master of hardboiled crime fiction. Witty, gritty and essential.
Tough Brooklyn PI Vic Powers thought he’d seen it all, but then someone threatens to blow away the only thing he holds dear. Before long he is on a hellbound train to confront the psychopathic childhood friend whose monstrous games still haunt him. And when pushed, Powers knows that he can be a monster himself.

“A sharp, pistol crack of a book, pure and loving homage to the hardboiled pulps of yesteryear.” – Daily Telegraph
“The nonstop action is interrupted only by occasional epiphanies that make Mickey Spillane look like Plato” – Kirkus Reviews
