Publisher's Summary

Young Leon Hubbard was arrogant and near psychotic. So when he was killed on a South Philadelphia construction site, everyone who knew him wanted to bury the bad news with the body. All, that is, except two - Leon's mother and the local columnist for the common man. Now back in print, God's Pocket is the powerful first novel from the National Book Award-winning author of Paris Trout.

Dexter is a master

Vivid characters, complex story, outstanding dialogue. A bloodthirsty blue-color tale of mishap and revenge. And the reading of this book is top notch.
