The sixth novel in the acclaimed Nebraska series, “one of the most refreshing additions to the ranks of hard-boiled detectives,” Publishers Weekly.
When Darius LeClerc, the nephew of one of Nebraska’s old friends, is gunned down on an Omaha street, it appears to be just another random, drive-by gang shooting. But Nebraska believes Darius was intentionally targeted and isn’t willing to let it go. He teams up with the boy’s uncle to discover the motive…and find the killers. It’s a dangerous quest that takes them into Omaha’s alleys and backstreets, and into the dark, brutal heart of urban gang violence.
For Nebraska, the Omaha-based private detective and hopeful mystery writer, things are seldom as straightforward as they first appear. These three stories, featuring characters from the internationally published series of novels that began with The Nebraska Quotient (nominated for a Shamus Award by the Private Eye Writer of America), illustrate the determination, resourcefulness, and, sometimes, deliberate rejection of common sense that drive Nebraska toward the ultimate truth—whether he likes it or not.
All six novels in the acclaimed NEBRASKA series of private eye novels, “one of the most refreshing additions to the ranks of hardboiled detectives. An engrossing, well-crafted story with many bizarre twists. Top-notch entertainment." Publishers Weekly
