Overview

Leonard March walks free from jail after fourteen years' hard time, served after turning state's witness against his Mafia boss Salvatore Lombard. It's only after Leonard is sentenced that the public learned that he was a Mob hitman with eighteen deaths to answer for. Leonard is released to public outrage and media furore. He spends his time working as a janitor while looking over his shoulder, fearful of a vigilante attack or a revenge hit from his former colleagues. At 62 and with plenty of time on his hands, he is at an age when most men grow reflective and attempt to understand their mark on the world. But for Leonard, while the threats to his safety are not imagined, his self-reflection may pose the greatest threat of all.

Reviews

* 'White-knuckle ride... a cracking piece of hard-boiled noir... different kinds of venality are put wittily under the microscope as the book rattles along to its terrific conclusion' Metro * 'So noir... all the way to a surprisingly bold ending... Fairly zips along' Laura Wilson, Guardian


Spare prose and assured pacing place this above most other contemporary noirs * Publishers Weekly, US * With graphic imagery and exciting twists, this novel is impossible to put down and has a surprising ending. A brilliant read * Aberdeen Press & Journal * This novel is everything hard-boiled fiction should be - compact, direct and disciplined, and concerned with humans rather than stereotypes. It is also, for all its violent subject matter, a quietly told story, which makes its tension all the more intense -- Mat Coward * Morning Star * His style is one of the best among crime writers going today. So far, the two other books of this trilogy have made many best-of lists, and (guess what?) this will be his hat trick. I can(1)t think of another writer I(1)m more excited to see another book come from than Zeltserman * Bookgasm, USA * Dave Zeltserman is at it again writing about ex-con antiheroes with the kind of panache that would make Jim Thompson, king of the psycho killer novels, proud. -- Ed Siegel * Boston Globe *
