Description

Now, Stephen R. Donaldson comes clean as the author of a gripping series of crime novels starring private detectives, Mick Axbrewder and Ginny Fistolouri. When Mick catches a bullet while in the process of taking out the top hitman of 'El Senor' - Puerto del Sol's only real crime-lord - his partner and sometime lover, Ginny Fistoulari decides to get the both of them out of town. But running doesn't seem to solve half their problems. Mick, without a PI licence and fast alienating Ginny, must rebuild his life, but the only way seems to trust the one man whom he is coming to hate most, Marshal Viviter. A man who is everything, and has everything that Mick could want but hides a dark side that could hurt them both...show more

Review quote

Donaldson wrote some of the very best fantasy novels in his Thomas Covenant series but seemed to lose his way for many years after these groundbreaking books. His fans have been hungry for new fantasy work from him, but whether this book will supply the need is open to doubt. It is, in fact, a crime novel in the noir idiom which has little in common with his early work. Private detective Mick Axbrewder takes a bullet while in the process of shooting the top hitman employed by crime lord "El Senor". Mick's partner (and lover) Ginny decides to hustle them both out of town, but as their relationship unravels, Mick finds that he needs to consult the man he hates most, Marshal Viviter, in order to solve his problems. A tautly written, dark-edged thriller.show more
