Publisher's Summary

New York's Alphabet City is a magnet for desperate hustlers, con men, and last-chance addicts. Payton Sherwood knows that scene. But Payton also lives by a whiteknight creed derived from the heroes of golden age detective fiction. And like those renowned hardboiled private eyes, he is riddled with loss—the loss of an old love who still exists in daydreams, and the loss of a city he barely recognizes.

Payton takes a wrong turn on a side street and stumbles into trouble in the form of three bullnecked heavies and a tough sixteen-year-old runaway named Gloria Manlow. After taking a savage beating, he tracks Gloria through Alphabet City, where the shadows that frighten aren't those that shade the street, but rather the soul. Payton's dusktodawn nightmare on the wild side is about to begin—and nothing will stop it but death.

What the Critics Say

“Readers nostalgic for the shabby PI with the manly integrity of Bogart will cheer the debut of Atwood and his '90s noir hero. The narration pulses with verve and threat, and through Payton's vividly rendered voice readers will know the sweat, lust and fear.” (Publishers Weekly)
