One of the smartest suspense debuts since "A Simple Plan." "A wonderfully moody and atmospheric story reminiscent of the masters of the noir mysteries. Tightly plotted, sophisticated, and engrossing, this is a winner" (Nelson DeMille).
From the ominous first sentence of Dolan's debut-"The shovel has to meet certain requirements"-noir fans will know they're in for a treat. The fun begins when the enigmatic David Loogan lands an editing job at the Michigan-based mystery magazine Gray Streets. He befriends the publisher, Tom, and also enters into an affair with Tom's wife. When Tom asks David to help him dispose of a corpse, things really start to unravel. While deftly navigating numerous plot twists, actor/narrator Erik Davies (The Orpheus Deception) offers a crisp, droll delivery that's spot on. For all fans of hard-boiled fiction. [The Putnam hc was "highly recommended for readers who enjoy twisty and witty crime thrillers," LJ 7/09.-Ed.]-Beth Farrell, Portage Cty. Dist.
