In 1930s Los Angeles, someone desperately wants to know who Danny Landon is. That someone is Danny himself. Intimate associates call him "Two Gun Danny", but all the young man really knows is that some terrible incident has erased his memory. According to his boss, mobster Bud Seitz - a vicious, sadistic killer ironically nicknamed "The Kind One" - Danny's amnesia is the result of a blow to the head with a lead pipe. But Danny's not sure of anything. As Danny maneuvers through the corrupt, sun-drenched city, he uncovers terrible secrets and finds himself on a mission to liberate those he cares about.More
"Tom Epperson has managed the uncommon feat of writing a genre novel that can hold its own alongside (if not best) other works considered more literary. On every page, the language is crisp and fresh, the details sharp and keenly observed, the dialogue real, never forced. When Epperson elevates his prose to the lyrical, he reads like a streamlined Joseph Conrad. . . . the novel itself is of the highest caliber in its genre and makes the leap into literature, as do the best works in all genres."
