Publisher's Summary

You'll hear the soft, lazy voice of a dame who's been around, and you'll meet up with a beautiful heller. You'll learn the lurid secrets of a man's locked past, and you'll prowl dark alleys with two men--two men turned hunters. And you'll wonder--why Ed and his Uncle Am didn't level with the cops; what business a gang would have with Ed's dead father; and where the killer thought the hunters would go wrong. Here are your answers, in this fast-spinning, two-fisted mystery about thugs, molls, and carnival folks.
