Shamus Award winner and Edgar Award nominee Don Winslow combines
breathless suspense, zany wit, and whiplash action in his latest novel
featuring grad student/private eye Neal Carey. Now Neal is assigned to escort
monkeyish octogenarian Natty Silver home from Las Vegas to Palm Springs. Natty,
once a burlesque top banana, has a nonstop barrage of corny jokes, an eye for
an aging cocktail waitress, and a chronic disappearing act.
When Neal catches up with him, he can see why Natty doesn’t want to go
home. Sole witness to a crime, he’s now the quarry of hard-faced suits, a
fascist con artist, and a career-track assassin. And bodyguard Neal, scorching
through the trackless desert at eighty miles per hour, brooding on his inner
child by freezing starlight, and looking down the barrel of one gun too many, is
soon dodging vultures and on the brink of a surprise watery grave.
