Publisher's Summary

Neal Carey has to keep the mob, the FBI, and a major television personality from killing his newest client—but he’s tempted to do the job himself.

Sometime student and ever-reluctant detective Neal Carey would rather be finishing a dull doctoral thesis than staring down the nose of a loaded gun—but his new assignment doesn’t sound dangerous. All he has to do is pull off the ultimate makeover: turn Polly Paget—a gum-chewing, foul-mouthed, big-haired broad—into a perfect lady in time to testify in a rape case against Jack Landis, head of the Family Cable Network and America’s most beloved family man. But Polly isn’t cooperating, and everyone—including a former FBI agent, an obsessive-compulsive hit man, the Mafia, a porn prince, and a slew of tabloid reporters—is on her trail, turning Neal’s “simple” assignment into a deadly game of duck-duck-goose.

In a hellish and hilarious escapade that takes him from the deserts of Nevada to the bright lights of Las Vegas and finally to a hair-raising climax in a shoddily built amusement park, Neal tries to escape the mob’s big guns while taking a slippery walk up the world’s biggest water slide.

What the Critics Say

“Elmore Leonard meets Professor Higgins in Winslow’s latest high-spirited Neal Carey caper…Winslow’s dialogue zips along as smartly as the action.” (Publishers Weekly)

    "So fun ti listen ro!!!"

    I must say, I found I got pretty embarrassed listening to this book. The reason? I was listening to it out in public and I could not quit laughing!! I'm hooked to this series. I really love how Don Winslow mind works. Just a single comment about a person's hair and I find myself laughing out loud. Writers who can tell me a great story and make me laugh too are my fav!! Of course, it's the perfect pairing of writer and narrator that makes it perfect!

    "Loved it!"

    Just discovered Don Winslow. His writing is tight - his characters are quirky - but very relatable. Stories remind me of old fashioned radio dramas. Love the Narrator - he really pulls the listener into the story!
    Highly recommend this title and its Narrator!
