A stunning, hard-charging new crime novel in the tradtion of Richard Stark, Lawrence Block and Thomas Perry.
On Valentine’s Day, a professional thief and his partner robbed a bank in a Central Pennsylvania town. It all went well until they tried to get away. His partner was killed, the money was lost, and the injured thief barely escaped with his life. Now, four months later, he’s going back for his money. But he’s not the only one after it. Corrupt cops, warring street gangs, white nationalists and crooked politicians all agree on one thing – they want him gone. Permanently.
He's very good, and he's a genuine Pennsylvanian. Knighton's A Few Days Away is hard-edged and suspenseful, with action that feels real and an anti-hero who can keep all the moving parts in his mind at once.
