A stunning anthology of Philadelphia-set crime stories. In "Happy Hour," the title story, a small-time grifter steals an overcoat on Christmas Eve and finds a pair of gloves, a pack of gum, and forty thousand dollars in the pocket. But his unexpected score soon becomes an icy nightmare.
Hard-edged contemporary noir novel with a relentless anti-hero – a thief with no name. It’s a taut, pacy tale referencing Richard Stark’s Parker novels, but with even more icy cynicism. Knighton’s thief and his unswerving, self-declared righteousness will delight pulp fans.
Taut writing, crisp dialogue, non-stop action. What more could you want?
Superior prose matches the clever plot, which takes unpredictable but plausible detours. Lou Berney fans will be enthralled.
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.
