Reluctant hit man Henry Thompson has fallen on hard times. His grip on life is disintegrating, his pistol hand is shaking, his body is pinned to his living room couch by painkillers—and his boss, Russian mobster David Dolokhov, isn’t happy about any of it. So Henry is surprised when he’s handed a new assignment: keep tabs on a minor league baseball star named Miguel Arenas.

Henry has no pity for the slugger and the wicked gambling problem that got him in trouble, but he can’t help liking the guy. After all, Henry used to be just like him, a natural-born ball player with a bright future. But that was long ago, before Henry did some guy a favor and ended up running for his life; before his girlfriend and buddies got gunned down by someone on his tail; before he agreed to buy his parents’ safety with a life of violence.

When Miguel gets drafted by the Mets and is sent to the Brooklyn Cyclones, Henry must head back to New York, back to the place where all his problems began and where Henry might find a real reason to keep living—a reason that may just cost him his life.

    Peter Straub

  • “Huston writes dialogue so combustible it could fuel a bus and characters crazy enough to take it on the road.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Among the new voices in twenty-first-century crime fiction, Charlie Huston…is where it’s at.”

    Washington Post

    Ken Bruen, Shamus Award–winning author

  • “Huston doesn’t let his battered, tormented protagonist rest for one moment in the exciting final volume of his trilogy featuring Henry ‘Hank’ Thompson.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Hank Thompson comes full circle in this fitting end to a mayhem-packed trilogy that also packs a potent emotional punch.”
