Publisher's Summary

Ed McBain, author of the best-selling 87th Precinct series, takes us Downtown in a bold departure of a novel that will have listeners cheering for a lone out-of-towner running for his life in New York City.

Meet Michael Barnes, a Florida orange grower who finds himself in a Manhattan bar with a couple of hours to kill. It's a couple of hours that almost kill him, as he's swindled, robbed, framed for murder, and hunted down by an assassin in one of the wildest, scariest, funniest, fastest 24 hours ever packed into one novel.
