Publisher's Summary

When Senator Prescott Bush demands the mummified head of Pancho Villa for Yale's Skull & Bones Society's trophy case, a pulp writer named Lassiter winds up holding the bag.Craig McDonald is an award-winning journalist whose fiction has graced numerous anthologies of crime noir. Set in 1957, Head Games is a quirky, action-packed caper hailed as a "fun, deft debut" (Publishers Weekly).


What the Critics Say

"This slick caper novel touches chords of myth, history, loss and redemption just enough so you can hear echoes faintly under the gunfire." (Publishers Weekly)
"There's even a cameo from a callow, foul-mouthed Skull and Bones initiate named "George W." Much of Head Games reads like a picaresque adventure, but McDonald's portraits of Welles, Dietrich, and Pancho Villa are beguiling and seem knowing. This one is simply great fun!" (Booklist)
