Publisher's Summary

Once a devastated mill town, by 1959 Locke City has established itself as a thriving center of vice tourism. The city is controlled by boss Royal Beaumont, who took it by force many years ago and has held it against all comers since. Now his domain is being threatened by an invading crime syndicate. But in a town where crime and politics are virtually indivisible, there are other players awaiting their turn onstage. Beaumont imports a hired killer, Walker Dett, a master tactician whose trademark is wholesale destruction. In a stunning departure from his usual territory, Andrew Vachss gives us a masterful novel that is also an epic story of postwar America. A searing portrait of corruption in a small town, this is Vachss's most ambitious, innovative, and explosive work yet.

Critic Reviews

"Ambitious and often entertainingly pulpy 'Two Trains Running' also has long stretches of back-story-laden dialogue and cringe-inducing romantic melodrama." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Vachss plows a field famously sowed by Dashiell Hammett and reaps his own kind of red harvest....Dark, violent, blood-drenched, page-turning." (Kirkus Reviews)
