Two knockaround guys named Clay and Karras are out looking for trouble when they stumble onto a drug deal gone bad and end up with a pile of money that isn't theirs. When the well-armed dealer starts spilling blood to get to the cash, Clay and Karras must take a stand, go straight, and get justice—or maybe just sweet revenge.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Pelecanos is more than merely slick; there’s heart behind the Tarantino-esque ephemera, and these details carry with them the sadness of a city teetering on the brink.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Combining the eccentric flash of Pulp Fiction, the noir soul of David Goodis, and the idiosyncratic heart of Elmore Leonard, this wildly violent crime novel effectively evokes the comic-book heroics of the Superfly era while at the same time sucker punching us with the humanity at its core.” Booklist (starred review)
“Cheech and Chong meet Pulp Fiction.” Library Journal
“Pelecanos keeps up the tension with constant collisions over race, sex, and what passes for honor as the characters hurtle toward a climactic Fourth of July confrontation.” Kirkus Reviews
