Description

They are two sworn enemies with a single obsession: a woman on the run from them both. Scott Weiss is a private detective. John Foy is a profes-sional killer. The woman is Julie Wyant, a hooker with the face of an angel.
Julie spent one night with Foy--a night of psycho-pathic cruelty that Foy called love. Desperate to get away from him, she vanished without a trace. And Foy wants her back.
There's only one man who can find her: Weiss, the best locate operative in the business. She's begged him not to look for her, fearing he'll bring the killer in his wake. But Weiss can't stay away.
Now, from a town called Paradise, through a wilder-ness that feels like hell, Weiss searches for Julie--and the killer follows, waiting for his chance.
They are two expert hunters matching move for move--until it ends on Damnation Street.

Back cover copy

PRAISE FOR "SHOTGUN ALLEY"
"Andrew Klavan is doing something that is rarely done . . . a unique angle on the private-eye novel. I liked "Dynamite Road." I liked "Shotgun Alley" even better."--Michael Connelly
""Shotgun Alley" is smart, tough, and fun. The writing is robust and spot-on, and the story is a collision of powerful characters you just can't take your eyes off. Splendid entertainment."--T. Jefferson Parker
"Klavan takes hold of the darkest side of dark, mounts it on a Harley, then revs it up and sends it straight to hell."--Allan Folsom
PRAISE FOR "DYNAMITE ROAD"
"A dynamite read about small-town corruption, drug running, and a genuinely terrifying serial killer."--" San Diego Union Tribune"
"Klavan winds his tale tighter and tighter until the reader is hopelessly spellbound. Superb suspense by a master storyteller."--Clive Cussler
"A fast-paced, entertaining thrill-ride of a book. Klavan does tough-guy heroes and sexual tension better than anyone writing today."--Janet Evanovich
