Once, Detective Buck Schatz patrolled the city of Memphis, chasing down robbers and killers with a blackjack truncheon and a .357. But he’s been retired for decades. Now he’s frail and demented, and Rose, his wife of seventy-two years, is ill and facing a choice about her health care that Buck is terrified to even consider. The future looks short and bleak, and Buck’s only escape is into the past. But Buck’s past is under attack as well. After thirty-five years on death row, convicted serial killer Chester March finally has an execution date. Chester is the oldest condemned man in the United States, and his case has attracted the attention of NPR producer Carlos Watkins, who believes Chester was convicted on the strength of a coerced confession. Chester’s conviction is the capstone on Buck’s storied career, and, to save Chester’s life, Watkins is prepared to tear down Buck’s reputation and legacy.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“One of the most interesting characters we have seen in a while…This book is a hidden gem.” Mystery Scene
“Should you, will you, and how can you fight the reaper are questions Friedman handles with amazing grace. Screamingly funny and achingly sad.” Kirkus Reviews (starred reviews)
“Buck Schatz makes a welcome return…John Grisham fans looking for more nuance and deeper characterizations will be rewarded.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Buck Schatz, the codger star of Don’t Ever Get Old and Don’t Ever Look Back, returns. Once again, he puts pizzazz into aging. Well, sort of…Told in the same compulsively readable prose.” Booklist
