Description

Page Murdock doesn't know why someone sent hired killers after him, but he knows where they're coming from. With an unwilling backup man, Murdock takes up temporary residence among the whores, gamblers, dope addicts, and cutthroats of the continent's foulest district--San Francisco's Barbary Coast. No man here is trustworthy. The enemies he's really worried about, though, are the men who run things, the politicians. Murdock's quest takes him into Chinatown, into opium dens, and into league with a man of an alien culture who controls vices that make respectable people quail. Loren D. Estleman's latest tale of Page Murdock delivers excitement and satisfaction as only Estleman can.show more
