Publisher's Summary

A golden Cadillac big enough to cross the ocean has been seen sailing along the streets of Harlem. A hit-and-run victim's been hit so hard she got embedded in the wall of a convent. A shootout with three heistmen dressed as cops has left an important politician in a coma - and a lot of money missing. And Grave Digger Jones and Coffin Ed Johnson are the ones who have to piece it all together.

All Shot Up is chaotic, bloody - and completely unforgettable. Chester Himes wrote detective fiction darker, dirtier, and more extreme than anyone else dared.

Great dialogue

Chester Himes tells a story as it happened, in colorful language used by his colorful characters. I love listening to expressions used by Gravedigger and Coffin Ed. The reader brings it all to life. He becomes the characters. A great book to listen to.
