Publisher's Summary

It's Christmas Eve, 1979, in Wichita, and Charlie Arglist, a crooked lawyer and strip-club owner, is drunkenly making the rounds before he blows town for good. Getting progressively drunker and deeper in trouble, Charlie needs to drop off a photograph of a local official in a compromising position and steal some drug money. Before it's all over, a lot of people are going to wind up dead.


What the Critics Say

"[A] funny, craftily malevolent first novel, an ice-pick-sharp crime story that sustains its film-noir energy all the way to an outrageous whammy of an ending." (The New York Times)
"A pitch-perfect foray into pulp fiction, witty and bitter, with an ironic conclusion that makes a neat package." (Library Journal)

A little slow at times

There were slow parts in this book and some unbelievable parts, but overall okay.

Entertaining ...

This isn't bad. It was enjoyable way to pass the time. If you like movies like Blood Simple and A Simple Plan, if you appreciate almost anything Billie Bob Thorton is in, then you'll enjoy this one. Gardner did a nice job with the narration.
