Three Hours Past Midnight

Three Hours Past Midnight by Tony Knighton

When a Philadelphia state senator is arrested for racketeering and held without bail, his ex-girlfriend reveals to a shady, retired cop that there’s half-a-million dollars just sitting in his bedroom safe. The cop brings in a professional thief, who rips the safe from the wall and drops it out the window. It’s a sweet score – but they’re hijacked before they open it. The thief survives and tears through the city, going up against warring gangsters, bent cops, and a cold-blooded assassin to take back what’s his – even if it means dying for it.

A wonderful thriller. It oozes grit and swagger and leaves blood all over your hands.

Three Hours Past Midnight 5.0

There is a touch of Hemingway and Chandler in the writing. Hard-boiled noir thrillers don't come any better than this.
