1962, a sweet, innocent time in America… after McCarthy and before Vietnam. A time of peace and trust, when girls hitch-hiked without a care. But for an ice-hearted killer, a time of easy pickings. Griff and Fats, Bay City’s hardest homicide detectives, are pitted against a monster who tortures and kills, but time is running out. Brooklyn-based crime guru (and editor of Hardboiled magazine) Gary Lovisi’s powerhouse début novel is a major contribution to the hard-boiled school of detective fiction, a roller-coaster ride of sex, violence and suspense. Packaged with two Griff and Fats short stories for added value.
“This isn’t a first novel, this is a book written by a craftsman who learned his business from the masters.” – Eugene Izzi
